    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    DISC is required by SMU. While writing essays and doing research papers may not be your favorite things, Prof. Whitehead does lead an interesting class. I enjoyed the content and the class itself.

    Course highlights:

    The class was about perspective and understanding, which is innately interesting. Class discussions were the best; the class was comfortable enough that you could be serious but also have the occasional laugh.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Going to the writing center in the ALEC is one of the best things you can do before handing a paper in. Call early on to set up your appointment, and make sure to give yourself time to revise and edit between your conference and the due date (I personally gave myself a week).

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    DISC classes are either easy for you because they're discussion based, or harder because of that reason. You HAVE to come to class prepared, or it will be obvious, because your classes are smaller than their already small sizes.

    Course highlights:

    I loved how candid the course could be. In my class, "The American Dream", we got really honest about the realities of the lives of different Americans. I was able to talk about black history with pure candidness and I wish people had spoken more about what their American dream and identity and realities were, but not only did a lot of people in the room have similar experiences, they were quiet. Discussion in DISC is VERY encouraged; it helps EVERYONE. You never know when you stumble upon an essay idea!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS ask the professor for help on essays; they'll give guidance on what they're looking for and if you're headed in the correct direction. Always get your thesis/intro paragraph checked before you more on, even better, get your outline checked if you're into making those!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course because the teacher was incredible and really enjoyed what she was teaching. She really helped her students when they needed personal attention.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how authors express personal experiences in their stories. I also discovered a whole new genre of books that I enjoy, that I never would have guessed that I would like.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the short stories twice, once just as a read, then the second time pay extra attention to areas of question that you know the teacher is looking for. It actually made the short stories a breeze.
