    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class was really interesting. It does move quite fast with the assigned readings so make sure you're either reading the plays fully, or watching them online.

    Course highlights:

    Read over 20 plays ranging from the classics to modern day playwrights. You also learn about playwrighting and what makes a good play.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely not a class to not do your readings for. Discussion based and only one paper.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is wonderful for theater lovers and theater novices alike! It delves into the richness of some of the world's greatest plays and forces one to think not only about the literary meaning, but how text and theatrical performance have shaped and developed society.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about my beliefs on theater, and I thought I already knew a lot! This forced me to discuss and interpret brand new, sometimes uncomfortable and unanswerable questions. The professor creates an environment that welcomes passionate discussion and does a wonderful job of encouraging everyone to contribute.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of all the reading, and know that there is never a right or a wrong answer. Maintaining a high level of thoughtfulness and openness will help you succeed!
