    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was passionate about what she was teaching, which made the class more engaging. She even seemed overbearing at times.

    Course highlights:

    I remember being introduced to the novel, Persepolis, and reading it changed my perceptions of the country of Iran and it's people. It challenged what I thought I knew about Iranians, and revealed how messy the situation has been there. If you're interested in issues concerning the Middle East, then I recommend this class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be able to write notes quickly because the lectures can go fast.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone considering an English major, as well as those who need to fulfill a gen ed requirement. It's honestly pretty easy (the reading load felt light to me, but I am a lit major) and the writing assignments were not intense. The selections are interesting and Dr. Segall is particularly interested in engaging with students and current events via all media available to her.

    Course highlights:

    This course will introduce you to the language and ideas surrounding colonization and its effects in hybridity/liminality, identity, and narrative. You'll learn how to read for the ideas behind the text and learn how background and history play out in personal narrative.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading and take notes on it! If you have trouble connecting the ideas from lecture to the reading, try talking with Dr. Segall about it. Make the ideas your own, frame the content with your own words, but learn how to use the language Dr. Segall suggests as well- she really focuses on specific phrases and you'll get along better if you use them.
