    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course! In college I was a pre-med student, so this class was a very nice change of pace.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was definitely the literature we had the opportunity to read. Books like Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro, Dracula by Bram Stoker, and especially Paradise Lost by John Milton were a delight to read and a refreshing change from the many science classes I was taking. I learned that picking up a book to read for fun once in a while is actually fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books from beginning to end. Also, participate in class discussions as much as you can. The discussion was what made the class interesting. By listening to other perspectives you realize things about the book you had not realized before.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course made me fall more in love with literature than I could have thought possible. We examined a series of English pieces through the lens of war. At first, I thought this was somewhat odd, but the content in every class was so dense and intriguing. I tell everyone I can to take this course!

    Course highlights:

    We read classic English literature, and it was never boring. The professor picked difficult texts, but they were unbelievably enjoyable. I learned how to dissect pieces and to engage in discussions, and this capability has undeniably helped me in other subjects I have taken.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Always make sure you are prepared, and do not be afraid to go to the professor! Your peers are incredible resources if you are struggling, and everyone around you wants you to succeed.
