    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Piscitello’s class consists of being prepared before class and understanding the reading material. There is always going to be class discussions and groups being formed to discuss what we’ve taken away from the reading. Professor Piscitello looks out for the well being of the students and she wants her students to succeed in class.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course was that the class never seemed to be boring, Professor Piscitello tries to keep the students engaged. My writing has improved because of the writing assignments and essays that were given.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to do well in this class, you need to be present, do all the in-class and out-of-class writing assignments, as well as the readings, since that’s part of class discussions. If you do all of that, I wouldn’t worry about not doing well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course explores more American and British authors across many genres including fiction, drama, and poetry. The class focuses on developing our literary analysis skills as well as our critical writing/research skills.

    Course highlights:

    Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka was the literary highlight of the semester in terms of novels because it was interesting to see the different writing style. Sylvia Plath's poetry was also entrancing as it is encompasses a darker, more developed world. The professor, Stephen Wetta, was also an excellent professor in that he allowed students to form their own opinions and did not assume to know all. He guided our discussions without being overbearing and brought to our attention different ways of seeing stories or characters.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read everything assigned, not because you have to, but because it really is interesting and the professor loves when you have anything to add to the discussion.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Because this class provides a great insight on the world of literature and opens up your mind to the many concepts of life that is found within many great novels. It also helped me to improve my writing and expand my essays.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot during this course. I read books like "The Color Purple" and "The Giver," which are books I never really read during my high school years. These books have certain aspects of life that seems so real, such as the idea of slavery, child marriage, family, friendship, relationships and even things like dystopia societies. Since I also want to publish my own novel one day, these books inspire me to address such issues in my future books.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are a good writer, you will pass the class with ease.
