During this course, students were able to broaden their horizons by learning the subject matter. They appreciated the guest lecturers and found the material intriguing. The small class environment made individualized attention a no brainer and the assigned papers encouraged students to study their topics in depth. Occasionally, lectures were boring and the professor’s expectations for both assignments and class discussions were often unclear. It was suggested that more class discussions and better communication between students and the professor would improve the quality of this course. Prospective students should expect an average work load and to take their knowledge of the Holy Land to the next level.
