Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I had this one class in the Uchile humanities department, "History of religion in latinoamerica," that was really excellent. The grade was based on a lengthy research paper and an in-class presentation. It was difficult but it was very personally rewarding. The professor also really helped me out and talked wit hme after class multiple times.
