    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Monteverde really challenged our class to do our best, while keeping the material intriguing.

    Course highlights:

    I had the opportunity to read a variety of literature written by women, from several different genres. I not only further developed my appreciation for some known female authors, but also learned of some which I had never heard of before. Along with reading literature, Professor Monteverde was great at giving constructive feedback on my writing skills, which helped me to further develop them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put in plenty of effort when writing your papers! And enjoy getting to better know the works of some wonderful female authors.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a great course and it isn't difficult, but please take it seriously because it's so incredibly educational and useful!
