    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.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required however I would definitely try to take this course with Dr. Mangiavellano. He's super engaging and it's honestly kind of impossible to be bored in this class. He never gives too much work and really forces you to step outside of your comfort zone when you're writing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was reading "Pride and Prejudice." Although most people have read this book, I really liked reading it at this time in my life. The class discussions were engaging and I found myself really relating to Elizabeth Bennet and her struggles.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work as hard as you can on your essays. Dr. Mangiavellano can tell if you don't and in the end, you're only hurting yourself.
