    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you enjoy learning about greek gods and goddesses then this is definitely the course for you. It was very insightful about the legends and as long as you pay attention in section the class is a breeze.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the different legends and reading some of the stories in greek mythology. I learned a lot about what the Greeks believed in and how the believed the gods interacted with each other and the world.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest doing all the suggested readings and making sure to study for the weekly quizzes. It is also a great idea to keep the weekly quizzes and use them to study for the midterms and final.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures were interesting. He always had a story to tell relevant to the course material, for the first half of the lecture. Then he would have a PowerPoint presentation on the material being covered according to the syllabus, for the second half of the lecture.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was the creative project. You could do anything you wanted as long it had to do with the course material. I always thought Greek mythology was just myth, but it made me think, that these stories served a purpose, these stories were their religion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read. There are many books, but you only have to read specific parts of many of the books. You must also read greek plays.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was centered around the major, well-known works of Greek Mythology. Patten's lectures are a little bit hard to follow. You can't just rely on the power points to get all of the information. You have to pay attention to what he's saying in order to get good notes. Also, doing the readings is essential to doing well in the course.

    Course highlights:

    I thought that the material was really interesting. Most of the stories were ones I had heard about before, but I learned a lot of details about them that I would never have known without taking the class. The Iliad was my favorite epic poem that we studied.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention during lecture. Also, you must do the readings before your section in order to do well on the in-class quizzes.
