    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Out of all of the classes that I have taken so far at APUS, this was the hardest for me. It is the one class that I simply wasn't able to keep up with no matter how hard I tried. For me, it was very challenging and reading heavy. What we learned was interesting, there is no doubt about that, but it took a lot of time unless you are familiar with reading things such as Shakespeare! There are weekly quizzes that are worth 15 points each, there are only six forums but they aren't cakewalk! You have to do all of the reading and understand it before you can answer to forums. It is expected that you will do further research, even for the forums, so that you can respond to your classmates throughout the week and challenge what they said! In addition to all of that, Professor Kelly has two assignments due during the eight week course. One is only worth 20 points but he grades hard. I would recommend that you've taken all English courses that you need as I struggled with what he wanted from the papers!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot and my horizons were certainly broadened. I did come away from the course with a broader knowledge and a true understanding of how to look at things without preconceived notions. Those that we read about were fascinating and certainly had a lot to say, though it was repetitive and almost seemed circular theories from time to time. Philosophers were very wordy!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This is really like a self study course, there is little to no input from Professor Kelley at times and he can be hard to reach. There were a few times during the course that it took him better than a week to get back to me and once where he didn't get back to me at all. If you're good at self lead and self paced courses then this is a good one for you! Please remember that I would recommend you've taken all of your English Courses before taking this course. The writing assignments are graded very harshly and there is only two of them!
