    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Crisafulli as a force to be reckoned with. Her Introduction to Novel and Short Story course is challenging and insightful. She teaches one to reach into both their brain and their heart.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course we undoubtedly the three novels we read. All three were interlinked and related to the theme of the course. I learned that human survival is a key part of life; it taught me to analyze and be open to new ideas.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read everything! Quizzes after every reading assignment were given to test both our comprehension and analysis skills. Never put off the reading assignments.
