    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course had interesting stand points when interacting with the literature became more of trying to make connections between what actually happened during the time period the book was made and what time period the book was supposed to be set in. This course brought a lot of ideas and myths into perspective when trying to see which empire has to be credited for setting up a lot of the standards that are being used today as well. The course also showed how Roman Mythology was a more violent and intricate version of Greek Mythology.

    Course highlights:

    The knowledge that I gained from this course is to always pay attention to how far some of the acts and books have come in order for them to be recognized as the jeweled books of the past. When I mention "jeweled books from the past" is due to the fact that at one point Julius Caesar burnt a whole library dedicated to the works of some of the most well profound writers of the ancient times, so as a result possibly less than 75 works still exists that were retrieved before the whole library was burnt down.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way to succeed in this course is to pay attention in the classroom and take down the notes that are give. It is best if anyone who takes this course makes sure that they read the books that are administered to them and do the homework whenever it is assigned.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was such a sweet woman, and the class was so engaging and interesting. All of the readings were entertaining, and I found myself staying up just to find out what happened. I also see a lot of the lessons from the stories that apply to life, which I think is really important.

    Course highlights:

    We had readings ranging from epic poems to tragic plays to short poems and everything in between. We learned a lot about the history of myths and how they were applied to the lives of Ancient Greeks and why the works have survived to today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The readings are so extremely important to this class, so skipping them or not taking them seriously is a really easy way to be stuck, confused and put yourself in a position to do poorly.
