    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a fun course and I enjoy reading the shows. However, it can get a little boring at times if you already have read and understand the material, since in class all we do is analyze it.

    Course highlights:

    I liked reading the shows and finding things that I didn't see the first time i read it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS READ THE ASSIGNMENTS BEFORE THE CLASS. Also, always sign up for a time to meet with the professor reading your paper whenever possible.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First of all, students can only get into this course if they test into it with an essay they take at orientation. It allows the student to take one semester of english rather than two. That being said, if a student tests into ENGL 150, I highly recommend Michael Steffes as a professor. He was helpful, easy to understand, and I really enjoyed most of the essays I wrote in his class. However, there was quite a bit of philosophical readings, but I enjoyed it and found it relatable to other classes I was taking at the time.

    Course highlights:

    Rather than teaching you a lot about writing structure like you would expect in a class focused on essay writing, the professor focused more on analyzing the reading and getting the students to think about and discuss their opinions on them. This was very helpful when you eventually had to write the essay because you found that you already had strong ideas and opinions that you shared with the class, you just had to write them down.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't always have to do the readings, but it's hard to engage in class discussions (which make up most of the class) if you aren't prepared to talk about the readings. If you find yourself struggling with the class, the Michael Steffes is really nice and easy to talk to so I would suggest setting up a meeting with him to discuss your problems.
