    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Class was always interesting and fun through class participation and discussion.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot on first encounters vs. first impressions and applying that to different works of literature. My writing also improved immensely from Prof. Mangiavellano's thorough input.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the reading and make sure you participate in class! Let your voice be heard.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course looked at literature--fiction, poetry, and drama--through the lens of villains and antagonists.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about how antagonistic characters are created, and what they contribute to a work of fiction.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the readings, not only because it helps with class discussion, but because you're expected to complete a short, weekly journal entry based on what you've read.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was interesting and challenging and the professor was really nice and passionate. We read a lot of short stories and poems and learned what made them interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write better and how to read and reread texts to find a deeper meaning in them. It was focused mostly on short stories and poems and most of them were by the same authors but it was an interesting experience and I learned a lot about how to read and decipher things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to work on your writing skills and make sure that you have found something in the text. It would be a good idea to try to figure out what your trying to say with every paper because he wants you to actually say something.
