    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Great course. A lot of fruitful discussion and the professor is great. I took this course three years ago but Dr. Bruce remains one of my favorite teachers.

    Course highlights:

    No homework, and a lot of great discussion. I learned a lot more about diversity and inclusion while discussing topics like race, gender, religion, and sexuality.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course, and take it from Dr. Bruce. You won't regret it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Talmage's Honors 101 course is, perhaps, one of the most interesting and intellectually diverse courses available to me this semester. Limited to students of the SMBHC, Dr. Talmage presents honors students with several controversial literary writings, and fosters intellectual conversations regarding issues present in the literary works, and in society as a whole. For example, we have read Sigmund Freud, and spent a while discussing the topics of humanity, morality, and self-preservation in the modern society.

    Course highlights:

    Upon finishing the works of Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx, Toni Morrison, and the like, we have culminated discussions regarding themes present in these works as they relate to our modern day. This class definitely encourages participation, and participation is incredibly beneficial. Once you participate in this class, you learn so much about the beliefs of the students around you, as well as your own beliefs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO. THE. READING. Definitely do not be like me, and think that you can sparknote the books and still sound intelligent amongst your peers. Reading is fundamental for this class. And make no mistake, your classmates will do the reading. Consequently, your professor will be able to tell, as soon as you open your mouth, whether you have read the material, or whether you took the easy route.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Nordstrom is a very gifted conversationalist and the readings and essays he assigns are all extremely engaging. The class will hold your interest and teach you something, and you'll even have fun participating during class discussions. Participation is key in Dr. Nordstrom's class because he takes a participation grade at the end of the term that can seriously help (or hurt) your final scores in the course. I highly recommend taking Dr. Nordstrom's class if you have the opportunity as a freshman honors student.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to "read between the lines," so to speak, and to ask important questions when presented with a reading that I may not fully understand. In this course you will learn to make "assumptions" about everything and in turn you will be able to form opinions about ideas that may have originally seemed to far-fetched to grasp.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to visit Dr. Nordstrom during his office hours, ESPECIALLY near the end of the course when your final paper is due. He will help as much as he can without writing the paper for you and is very understanding when it comes to missing class or due dates due to unforeseen circumstances, as long as you TALK to him about it.
