    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    PT (Philip) Mc Niff is an incredible writing T.A. He does not confine his students to strict writing parameters, and allows us to explore virtually any subject of our choice. This freedom to explore a topic through our personal lens allows for a far more interesting writing experience.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was absolutely the general prompts that were assigned for each paper. They allowed you to take any perspective to explore the topic, rather than taking a writing sample and trying to find another way to state what was already written there. I specifically remember one of the prompts that generally asked us to explore what was high brow versus low brow and whether we agreed with this type of distinction. Many wrote about art, some wrote about sports, and I wrote about politics. There was no singular correct answer, and the diversity in approaches made for a more interesting discussion amongst students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class you need to have an opinion. It is not enough to do the readings and to show up to discussion. You will truly be as successful as you choose to be thanks to the freedom that the T.A allows you. I recommend you make your writing personal, do not feel pressured to agree with the point of view given in the readings or discussed in the class. Have an opinion, and be prepared to back it up in writing and in class. There will be a presentation that you will do at the end of the course, so be prepared to answer questions about your writing.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course before your senior year and at a time when your course load isn't very heavy or daunting, it is a tough course so take everything in stride.

    Course highlights:

    Its a fun course and I have learned overall how to improve my writing, analytical, and critical thinking skills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is an intense course! Pay attention and be sure to utilize the writing center whenever possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Boyd is a motivating and thoughtful leader encouraging exploration of different writing styles and discovery of a voice of your own. The lectures are deep discussions that apply to all areas of study and life, encouraging students to be more thoughtful, intentional members of the human race.

    Course highlights:

    This course was a discussion of issues that apply to the world today. The overarching idea of the arts and humanities, and the question of how they apply to all areas of study and life. I learned how to think and how to learn with this in mind, thoughtfully discussing prevalent issues and questions, whether they be political, social, economic or environmental.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like many, arguably all classes, you get out of this course what you out into it. Go to class, speak up, and show Dr. Boyd that you are committed to your growth as a writer and a thinker.
