    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Overall I think GCU should evaluate whether or not a course is required for students. This course basically teaches you how to write an essay for seven weeks. It is required and there is no way around it. It seems like a good money making idea for GCU.

    Course highlights:

    This course was a real struggle. Like I previously mentioned the whole class is about how to write an essay for seven weeks. It is very dry and hard to get through.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to ask your advisor if you can get out of taking this course. Ask if there is any way around it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    21st Century Skills was vital to my success thus far in college. I can say without a doubt that I learned what it will take to be successful in my future classes with Grand Canyon University. This course taught me how to produce college level work to include research, papers, and communicate with fellow students and staff in an effective way. I was thrilled that I learned so much of what to expect on my academic journey and feel confident I will make myself and my family proud.

    Course highlights:

    My greatest fear upon entering college was the fact I would be writing numerous papers on various subjects. There is a lot that goes into such work to include but not limited to research, cite of work, the actual writing of the paper and so on. I had no idea on how to research quality information that was reliable and accurate nor was I at all comfortable at citing my work. This class really taught me how to do both which has resulted in exceptional grades throughout this course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a course that is required and for good reason. I must say that I worked ahead to ensure I had time to ask questions and advice as the class progressed. Part of this class we were required to perform academic research from peer reviewed journals or other reliable resources and I took this seriously as it was the first time I had to do such through research. One step I did that really put me above the rest was taking twenty minutes a day to perform research on a general topic I did this for the practice so that when I took future courses I know how to effectively navigate my keywords for my specific research projects.
