    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend taking this Professor because he really cares about his students succeeding in critical thinking writing. He would always give us examples when writing a specific essay and would use current events.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a 7 page essay without sounding repetitive in my essays. I was not always a creative writer but this class taught me to think outside the box and to not write with basic supporting details.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to always start ahead of time with a rough draft in order to have it proof read from the writing center or even the professor. I would always start writing my paper a week and a half before the due date to give myself plenty of time to make edits.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it fulfills the requirement for the IGETC Critical Thinking section and allows you to analyze literary works more thoughtfully.

    Course highlights:

    The course that I took was online and it was fairly simple to complete the readings and respective assignments. I learned different ways to analyze the text as well as the techniques writers use in their works.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend doing all of the readings. Although it is online and it might be a temptation to slack off, this information will be useful for tests that you have to take later on or just in general life situations.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, specifically with this professor, because he encourages critical thinking and chides adulation. While he is witty and highly educated, he remains not the least bit supercilious; he easily acknowledges his own flaws so as to not sound pompous when lecturing, making the class a more interactive and welcoming learning experience.

    Course highlights:

    The essays that I had to write for this course provided me with more grammatical knowledge and patience. I learned that I should always be working on an essay or a story so as to not lose my grammatical knowledge or writing style.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Students should continuously be working on their essays for this course. Rather than an extended break between when one is due and the next is due, the student should immediately start the next after turning one in. This prevents procrastination from arising.
