    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's necessary for you to take this course to graduate, but it can also be extremely interesting!

    Course highlights:

    It was extremely gratifying to read books which I never would have read on my own and be able to have discussions based on them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have the teacher, the class tutor, and the writing tutors look over every essay you turn in, but most of all, listen to your teacher.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Seminar I because of the great disscusions the readings would bring about during class. If you want a thought provoking class this is it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me were the in depth class discussions with classmates. It was great to be able to hear everyone's ideas and speculations on the readings, it was really thought provoking and interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the readings thoroughly, take notes, get your papers read by peers then revise it. The essence of writting is rewritting! Talk to your proffessor get him/her to read it and get ideas.
