    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course only to students who genuinely like to learn about greek mythology or fantasy in a way. It is soul based on that and the readings can pile up. I enjoyed this class a lot and the lectures were always very interesting, however, if you are one who misses class a lot you will not do well on the final. The midterms and finals are both very lecture heavy.

    Course highlights:

    It was a good class to take my first quarter at UCSB because it helped ease me into the college workload. I learned how to manage my time, distribute my work, and adjust note taking to each professors liking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attending lectures is extremely necessary. You will not do well on exams if you don't attend. Constantly reviewing notes will make studying for midterms and final a lot easier. The tests are all memorization based. There was only one paper with little direction but as long as you start early you'll be okay.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for people that have a genuine interest in classical Greek mythology. Studying everything from original theogony to classic hero tales like the Iliad and the Odyssey allows students to truly understand the way the ancient Greeks viewed their religion, and how it stood the test of time. It also offers a look into great stories of romance, heroism, and tragedy while commenting of the human condition and the way ancients viewed their world and it's creation.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are numerous. Learning some of meanings of Greek words and their significance in the stories is very interesting. Many people forget that Greek mythology used to be a religion, like Christianity is today. It was worshiped differently of course, but this class allows you to see how a religion can change from an overarching practice to a fun story.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you focus on the topics that the professor emphasizes. Actually doing the readings will help you understand the general idea, and he will focus specifically on things he tests on. Also, pay attention to the relationships between the different gods, heroes, and people.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is pretty easy, however it is A LOT of reading. The grading is fair and the Final was pretty easy, if you did most of the reading. He focuses mostly on the literature side of Greek Myth, so keep that in mind for this specific professor.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights would be his teaching methods. He kept the class attention with iClicker and his witty remarks. Overall he is a great guy. We learned a lot about the literature behind the myth which was fairly interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do most of the readings and have an idea what is going on in them. He does weekly online assignments that require you to read the text, to be able to analyze, and come to conclusions about the text.
