    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor was exceptional when it came to making sure the students were learning the why and not only the what.

    This course made me a better writer. I was okay when it came to writing papers, but this course gave me tools i now use in all my writing work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a wonderful course if you want to learn how to use the English language to your advantage when it comes to writing and speaking.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only did this course introduce me to multiple pieces of literature and ways of writing but it brought me closer to my faith and mindfulness. Dr.Scheurer would have us meditate at the start of each class to refresh our minds and get us ready to dive into discussion over pieces of godly literature.

    Course highlights:

    The main theme of this course was work and vocation. We learned the difference between those two and how God can lead you to your vocation. My highlight was reading the novel "Lying Awake", it really distinguished the definition of vocation for me.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Before taking this course, be aware that you need to be able to manage your time. There is an enormous amount of reading and writing on each piece. I wish I knew this before I took the course because it was a reality check when all the assignments came rushing in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thought this course was phenomenal, largely due to the professor. Professor X was able to teach us how to analyze and write through different methods that were great for all forms of learning. We used discussion, personal journaling, essays, and readings to learn the materials being presented to us, and I really appreciated the variety available to us. Her openness with students also made for a great learning environment.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the professor. Having an 8am class is difficult, and she always took that into consideration when preparing her classes. She was able to read us well and could tell if overall the students were having a difficult day. We learned how to analyze some incredibly complex literature, and she was able to break it down into ways that made it much simpler, and within two weeks everyone in the class could do it like pros.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is a general and everybody must take it, but I think it is important to look into the different professors teaching this course and choose one with a teaching style that will positively influence your learning style.
