    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up to date with the writing. It is easy to fall behind.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Firstly, Effective Writing is one of the core Liberal Arts requirements at Augsburg, meaning that unless a student has completed the credit with AP or PSEO credit, it is required. That said, I think that Cowgill is a great professor. He's quite interesting and has some cool stories from when he was a college student.

    Course highlights:

    Professor is a fairly tough grader, but I think in a sense he's simply forcing you to care about your coursework. I saw a lot of students get less than stellar grades simply because they really didn't put the time and effort into their writing. I learned a lot about myself as a writer, and I learned to write more effectively, which, hence the name, is the intent of the course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do a fair amount of writing. Take the peer review sessions seriously. Don't procrastinate, and try and just go with it, strange things can happen and some of the things may seem personal, but at the end of the day if you put the effort in, I think you'll be happy with the grade you receive and you will have grown as a writer.
