    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I want to include the disclaimer that I DON'T recommend this course to anyone who is not willing to show up and at least read the material most of the time. New material is assigned for every class day. It's best to take notes during class discussions, but you can pass without it. She gives extra credit that might not be helpful if you work in the afternoons/evenings. Participating in class discussions is a plus. She is a feminist, and she does try to point discussions toward certain themes, but this was never offensive or annoying to me. Prepare to study very little for her quizzes and very much for her midterm and final.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed class discussions most. Quizzes were simple, basic tests to see if you read the material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes during discussions. Follow where she leads for better answers on exams. For exams, learn to recognize the unique "voice" or tone of the author. Show interested in the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I had little knowledge about British Literature before taking this class. Not only did I gain a better understanding of the literature, but of the authors and time period through wonderful discussions and activities​.

    Course highlights:

    For me, I loved getting to study various forms of literature. From poetry, to prose, to plays, to even Sherlock Holmes, there was something for everyone and we all left with a fuller understanding of a type of literature we might not have picked up outside of class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assignments! It is a large amount of reading, but it will help you during class discussion. While you are reading, take notes about what interests you or what you struggled to grasp.
