    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although it was a lot of outside work, the course really helped me become a better writer. The professor made sure to give us pointers throughout each of our papers, and really taught us how to improve even more on the next one.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot from this course. The specific professor I had required us to write essays and complete a presentation. She was great to meet with outside of class and gave a lot of good pointers to make our papers even better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give yourself ample time to complete your essays. Do not save them till the night before they are due, gradually work on them throughout the week. Not only does it make it easier on yourself, but you are more likely to receive a better grade if you actually put in the time and effort. Also take advantage of the office hours. She basically marks up your paper and tells you how to make it better, pretty much guaranteeing you to get a much better grade.
