    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Baines was a wealth of knowledge! She possesses a deep understanding and passion for the nuances of each of the works studied in the course. Her specialty is British Literature, but she excelled in getting us to think critically about all different types of literature.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the four required essays that forced students to analyze different works through rhetorical lenses. Also, the in class discussion was very engaging and it compelled us to consider perspectives other than our own, and challenged our biases.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! Be prepared to do a fair amount of reading. If you are not a strong writer, then I suggest utilizing the different resources available on campus, i.e. the writing lab, peer review, etc.

    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.
