    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Like many math majors like myself, English is not my favorite subject in the world, but I genuinely enjoyed coming to this class. Whether it was the awesome professor or prison literature focus that made it so awesome, I'm not sure, but I'm glad I chose this over Shakespeare!

    Course highlights:

    ENGL 2020 studies themes in literature, but this particular section focused on motifs that are common among prison writings. We studied everything from the Apostle Paul to Slim Shady.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading every night. It is never more that 10 pages, and you really will need it for in class quizes. It will make or break you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this cource! It was a focus on motifs of prison literature, which I figured would be pretty interesting. Dr. Hudson put so much effort into this course to make it the best English class I have ever taken. I didn't just learn about English, but I became inspired, and I see the world differently now, especially when it comes to America's prison system. I woukd definitely reccomend this to English lovers and nonlovers alike.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that people in prisons certainly have restrictions, but they can liberate themselves through writing. In this writing, we see common elements like number imagery, symbolism of bars and walls, and corruption in systems years ago and even today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE ASSIGNED LITERATURE! This is the best way to not only get a good grade, but to really absorb all of the great stories and information that the pieces have to offer. It never gets boring. It takes just a few minutes a day, and it makes all the difference.
