History of France: France, 1500 to 1715
I highly recommend taking any course taught by Professor Ford. She is a brilliant professor and her lectures are fun and engaging. I have taken two upper division classes with Professor Ford and I think she is the best professor in the history department. I recommend attending every lecture, taking detailed notes and completing all the reading she assigns. The course load is very manageable and her exams and essays have no surprises. She wants students to do well and if you put in the work, then you will not only receive a good grade, but you will actually enjoy learning about French history.
