    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Throughout this course, it pushed me to obtain a new understanding of concepts I have never studied before. It forced me to understand and study a whole new concept of analyzing public speaking, why people say what they say, and the idea of rhetoric and how its changed in meaning throughout time. All of this in mind, it ties in the idea of rhetoric into todays world focusing on the 2016 election and ancient Greece as one of the main examples throughout the semester.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting part of this course was being able to discuss the 2016 election in a brand new way that no one in todays world was discussing. With focussing on the rhetorical themes used by each candidate and why certain strategies, and statements were said gave me a whole new look to elections and campaigns in general. It caused us to stray away from all the negativity and focus on something that everyone cares about, while learning different forms of rhetoric.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Force yourself to dive deep into specific topics and try to analyze ideas in a deeper way then you have before. The Professor challenges students with the gradings of papers to first think and research, and then to try and get as specific and deep into concepts we've learned throughout the semester. This made myself and other students focus more on concepts within ideas rather than just focusing on the upfront ideas itself. If you are looking for a unique english class that will instead push you to think, discuss, and write in a way that most students haven't done before and not be in your basic english requirement class, I ask you to challenge yourself and take a leap with this class, it won't disappoint.
