    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course to fulfill a Humanities Requirement Gen. Ed. Class, simply because it sounded like the most interesting option out of the bunch. CLAS160D2 turned out to be an incredibly fulfilling class, and Professor Groves is very obviously enthused by this subject area, and is a great lecturer.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, I learned things I never would have looked into otherwise. Classical Mythology ranging from the 7th century BCE to about the 2nd century CE has influenced almost every medium we know of today, be it art, literature, film, etc. I had no idea how important it was to know about these stories until I took the class. If this is something that does not sound interesting to you, I promise it will peak your interest by the time you finish the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In my class section, we only had to come to class once a week for 35 minutes, to have a discussion about the readings and video lectures we had seen that week. There is a lot of reading, but it goes faster than you think, and the video lectures are very helpful albeit long. If you don't want to watch the video lectures, don't take this class, but the reading is not incredibly important, I skimmed most of the readings excluding the most interesting ones, and ended up just fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend to always attend class even if it seems as an easy course because you will miss out on important details. Be in good communication with your professor, besides Mr. Schon is an amazing professor.

    Course highlights:

    Well, this class is on Classical Mythology. I learned a quantity of mythological stories within the Greek and Roman civilization. It was easy to compare and contrast with modern views of mythology. You learn more than just about God and Goddesses. You are basically learning the importance, culture, religion, and personal stories of civilizations that play key roles in historical events.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please remember attendance, communication, creativeness, and enjoyment when taking this course.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is fairly easy and interesting!!

    Course highlights:

    What was great about this course was the material and the professor. He will work with you on anything and what you're learning is so cool, you probably have a little background on most of the myths, so its great to learn more!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are a few papers, but they are pretty short! Just take good notes, and study them for the midterm and final
