    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For all English or writing majors you are required to take this course but I must say it's a great learning experience. I was weary at first but I soon realized that while I did not understand all of it or have interest to pursue it past this class, I learned how to understand more of my own work and the works I read. I am able to see more than just words on a page and feel interested in getting to know the piece, author, and time period more. There are so many genres to Literary Theory and while you may not understand them all either, you might find some that interest you and make you a better writer. There is a final paper and steps leading to it, I always appreciate when work is broke down. We were able to learn so much this way and have a positive attitude toward the outcome.

    Course highlights:

    I found feminism and Marxism literary theory so interesting and what I was able to connect with the most. Our Professor is attentive and gives detailed feedback so even on the best paper, you are given options for improvement.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do you research and dive into every week head on. If you don't understand something, ask, and look it up elsewhere. You might find a version that helps you understand the concept more thoroughly.
