    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course really developed my understanding of literature and poetry. Moreover, it grew my love and interest for the subject. Professor Austin is helpful and takes the time to work with his students, of all skill levels!

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was reading and reviewing poetry. I discovered some new authors and thought more deeply about what they had to say. Studying Othello was another highlight of this course. I expected not to like it, but, after class discussion and study, it turned out to be a very interesting read!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Genuinely take the time to read and look over the material on your own. Even if you are not a person who enjoys English or reading, you may be surprised to find that some of the literature resonates with you and relates more to your life than you would have thought.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Mills is a teacher who uses the tough-love method in order for us to learn. He is very serious about his job and really enjoys the art of poetry and writings that partake in an english class. Although I did not have the greatest experience in his class, I learned more than I ever have with another english teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to actually write an essay. I've technically known how to write one since I was in middle school, but I have never been so proud of my writings until his class. His sternness and sarcastic comments made me more aware of the major and minor mistakes that were in each of my essays without me noticing and I appreciate them way more now.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The number one rule of advice that I can give on this course is to make sure you do not procrastinate. He does not give extensions and his essays are not ones you can do last minute. He always knows an essay that was rushed rather than an essay that had careful thought.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Gibbs is the only english professor at Cumberland County College who will let you bring your creativity to life with each essay that has to be written. He does not have a certain subject to write about, he simply has the type of essay and one is free to write about whatever. Since its a class two times a week, the first day would be a computer lab day where he is there to help or read what you have so far.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Gibbs was always there if I needed help or even if I needed an extension. He really loves seeing students grow with their writing and he understands that coming up with a topic to write an essay about can be challenging and he always keeps that in mind. I learned how to quickly write an essay because of the pointers that he taught us.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since there is an essay each week, make sure you get them done. It is not as hard as it may sound. Sometimes with other classes, it seems as if one essay a week is too much, but if you stay on top of your work and get it done there should be no issues! He is a great teacher and will gladly help in any way so reach out to him if you need an extension or extra help!
