UVa Coursera: The Modern World: Global History since 1760 _Week 6 Reflection

So glad I signed up  for  this course!

Listening calmly to the lectures without trying to cram for an exam is making this the very best history course that I have ever taken!  As an undergraduate science major, my non-science courses were almost all required core courses, and I gave them much less thought than I should have.  I am feeling very reassured, however, that I am acquainted with the basic events of world history.  Now though, I am finding it so interesting to watch for instances where decisions were made that shaped history to come.  It makes the decisions we are facing today so very important!
