    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires engagement and understanding of the material, including the study of novels and several short stories. It offers endless possibilities to think for yourself and expand your knowledge on several levels of learning.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to read deeper and evaluate symbolism and imagery in a literary work, which made reading more fun. English is a complicated language and thorough understanding of this provides better comprehension of certain aspects of the language or literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and take notes on important parts of the text. Always have an open mind because in literature, it is hard to have a wrong answer. You must be willing to hear what others have to say because it can impact your learning in a positive manner, even if you believe something different.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good class. I enjoy it mainly because we focus on fairy tales and analyzing that rather than having to read ton of novels. He made it interesting. The only thing that was bad was the papers. Some advice would be to make sure you pay attention in the first English class offered or Freshman Compostion I.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights would have to be being able to watch movies based off of fairy tales and tell why we thought the author chose to change the story. An example would be the Cinderella movie, or Into the Woods. It was more laid back, but strict. It helped me to understand there is more to reading than just understanding the basics of the story. It is important to research the author, understand them. Then it is important to really think of what the purpose of the story is.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to take your two Enflish classes back to back, that way you do not lose the information you learned from the first English class. Unless you go to a different university, you will more than likely get the same professor which will also help you in the long run. Make sure you stay on top of your work and do not slack off. Also, just because the rest of the class does not read the fairytale and you do, does not mean that you need to stop reading the stories that you are supposed to. It is okay to be the only one who really is trying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because of the brilliance of it. The professor integrates interesting themes such as American Heroes (like Batman) into his curriculum. Also, creative and analytical thinking are two of the most prominent points of the class itself. This is more than an English class, this is a study into psychology, pop culture, and the human will itself.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned a lot about the motivations behind storytelling, and what makes a good story.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is heavy on writing. I am sure that some would consider the reading to be heavy if they are not in the practice of reading.
