  3. Thanks for the links.

    How would you describe your experiences with WNMU?

    I see that you are well on your way.

    From a quick glance at the schedule, it doesn't seem that their course selection is that great in any given semester. Has this hampered your progress?

    I'd recommend that Railroad History class being offered this summer. Good class if you are interested in the subject with great readings and a really good instructor.

    I would completely agree. Profession Warren is great. I took Railroad History in the summer, Age of Marshall in the fall, and now I'm in History of Crime & Punishment. Each course has been slightly different in regards to requirements, but they're all neat.

    As for the overall course selection, yes there are limitations, however the cross listed courses allow for some flexibility. Some disciplines have much more to offer. It seems like there are tons of English courses. History & Political Science are somewhat limited, but I have not encountered a list of courses where I couldn't pick one that I was interested in.

    I'm not sure about the summer, because I'm still trying to figure out how many classes I actually need. If they accept my transfer credits, which I hope they do, I'll only need one more course in the summer.

    They are cheap. I am now interested...

    Do they have a list of the online courses that they offer or a course rotation guide?

    They're not just cheap, but they're actually pretty good courses. I can't say I've ever seen a course rotation list. I've always just looked in the catalog and looked back over past semesters to see what has been offered. I do know from talking to a few instructors that they are trying to build the program and design new courses for it. They just recently added the writing concentration.

    The courses look very interesting and unlike any I have seen at other schools.
    Crime and Punishment in US history
    Border Issues in US/Mexican relationship
    The Drug Wars
    Frontier Law Enforcement
    Age of Marshall
    The downside is that they don't have the typical courses
    Civil War
    World War II

    Any idea when the reading lists come out?

    Not sure... but don't wait for the book store. They are really slow. The best way to find out is by going to the schedule and clicking the course info link.

    The schedule hasn't officially been published yet, so that's probably why nothing is displayed right now.

    To update this thread, sometime in June the history & political science concentrations at WNMU posted a course rotation schedule:

    I'm in Railroad History with Warren this summer and really love the course - material, instructor, and format. I had to drop Indians of the Southwest with Fritz because 6 credits was too much for the summer. Plus, there was much more reading and emphasis on historiography. Since I'm new to history, the bar to entry was too high for my sanity.

    Hmm. I think I'll post a new discussion topic about HIST/POLS at WNMU since there does seem to be several people with experience there.

    So how was Inter-American Relations? I love Warren's format in 523 & 517 so much (especially in contrast to Fritz's discussion-heavy ethnography/historiography focus) and I'm trying to plan out what the other classes I should take for my third, unanswered set of emails to my assigned advisors. (I suppose I'll get a response once I reach that 15 credit mark... right?)

    Hi Everyone,

    I really enjoyed Professor Warren. I took Frontier Law Enforcement from him and had a blast with the research!

    Unfortunately, my plans for the Summer Term fell through for financial reasons.
