Balmer, Randall Silver_nugget
religion and american culture

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This class is great! If you are at all interested in the impact that religion had throughout American history then definitely take this class. Balmer is a wonderful lecturer, every class was engaging and you definitely come away with a great understanding of the material.

Workload:

You have to write three 4-8 page papers based on readings and lectures. They aren't too bad and you can resubmit them Also a Midterm( which was very easy), and final. The midterm, final, and each of the essays count for 20% of your grade. NOTE: TA's do ALL the grading, but they were pretty cool so it shouldn't make much of a difference either way.
