by Trinity M. on June 13, 2024
there were multiple test answers that were incorrect, otherwise pretty good course
by Aweis H. on June 13, 2024
amazing program, very flexible times.
by Elizabeth S. on June 13, 2024
If you do this course, do it only for the credits. Otherwise, it is not worth it. It is very biased and anti-conservative, as well as confusing because the timeline is continually jumping around and is very hard to follow. Also for being about U.S. History, it focused a lot on politics and foreign policy instead of actual history that is meaningful. By the way, why is there so much about identity politics in here? There is enough of that in the world already. This is supposed to be history, not a way to push support of the LGBTQ+ community onto students. So, all of you Christians who are doing this course or thinking about doing it, keep in mind that it is not Christian or even morally upright in the lowest standards. Though I did like my grader, she was very nice and helpful with the feedback.
by Alvin G. on June 13, 2024
A good course for any professional to take.
