    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Jarvis approaches teaching in a way that encourages students to understand concepts, rather than regurgitate information.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to strengthen my argument through persuasive language and logical writing structure, and also came to understand different perspectives on topics like government and ethics.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Readings will be discussed in class, so students should think about the topics and come up with ideas to share. Participation is not mandatory, but you should still be prepared to be asked your opinion.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course truly challenges its students to rise above the mediocrity that they have previously experienced in other courses. Professor Gordon, or KP as he prefers to be called, encourages his students to help each other and learn to truly think for themselves.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to question society's methodology of thinking and further investigate why the future of our society often allows the status quo to influence their decisions in life, effectively perpetuating a vicious cycle of uninspired political and societal jargon.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The work is hard, but manageable. You will either look at the Professor's new teaching style and want to have every class with him or you will drop the class witihin a week— something he will tell you himself. Also, keep up with the daily journal entries because they are very difficult to make up at the end of the semester.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't go out of my way to say to take this course but I wouldn't say it is the worse possible course you could take either. Her grading is fairly strict and is hard to understand sometimes. While her class was really annoying sometimes I think it did show me good writing skills that'll help me over time. If you don't like to write don't choose this class either.

    Course highlights:

    I think the nicest part about the course is you had to write 20 journals throughout the semester (just short paper type things, 250 words or more). But usually each of these journals will be small portions of a paper you have to do and then when you go to put your paper together you have everything you need. I did learn somewhat with grammar and writing but it wasn't overly exceptional.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to the writing center for sure for all your paper- multiple times. Go to her office hours and answer questions in class.
