    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Shakespeare is a wonderful writer, but squishing all his works into 8 weeks is difficult to say the least. It's a lot of work.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that I actually enjoyed Shakespeare's plays instead of being completely indifferent to them.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I had to read a play a week for the majority of the course, so be prepared for that on top of all the other work.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was highly engaged in the discussion forums and went beyond just the course discussion posts, but discussed other Shakespeare related items as well. The course surveys different plays written by Shakespeare with a final research essay. The essay is based on student choice, but must be about one of the plays read within the course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the history of Elizabethan England and how to better read and analyze Shakespeare plays. The discussions were engaging and the professor took the time to respond to almost everyone and pose questions that kept everyone thinking.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Begin reading the Shakespeare plays ahead of time or else it takes an entire day to read the play about 6-8 hours. Since the work is given ahead of time, it is easy to know the assignment and the discussion post before hand. Be sure as well to ask questions or have the professor read portions of the final essay to ensure the essay is headed in the right direction.
