    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    No! The content was interesting, but the professor graded extremely harshly, only assign a letter grade subjectively at the end of the semester. Additionally, we wrote 8 essays which ended up being over 30 pages, the suggested maximum for a freshman writing seminar.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught the basics of linguistics and the essays covered several themes. These essay topics included animal language, sign language, and music as a language, to name a few.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it! If you do, expect to get extremely low grades on the essays. However, if you get on Hale's good side early, you could still do well.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because its super interesting and is unlike other writing seminar classes. You get to read comic books and different graphic novels. The professor is also super helpful and straightforward with her requirements.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to be more concise with my words and I really enjoyed reading some of works that the professor picked out. The works are not random and are very much relevant to current events and everyday life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just follow directions and you'll be good.
