    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great to explore different types of comedy in varying mediums (books, plays, movies, etc). It is discussion-based, with several writing assignments and a couple presentations, as well an interesting mid-term and final. There are also several books that will you must read on your own; the course deals a lot with them.

    Course highlights:

    Students' opinions are always welcome, and the professor was willing to lead conversations in the right direction if necessary. I learned more about how to dissect comedy, and that some forms of humor aren't always abundantly apparent. There are also hilarious video clips shown that really cracked me up.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to follow directions on assignments, but to keep your creativity when completing the actual work. Speak your mind during classes, and don't be afraid to say something if you do not understand; some of the material can get a bit confusing, and you need to understand it to get a good grade. Tierney is wonderful; let him know if you have concerns!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone who can take a joke, but also enjoys analyzing literature. Mr. Tierney is very relaxed, funny, but also very smart and knows a lot about literature.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed this class, not only because of the professor, but the stories were very interesting and fun! I learned how to analyze Shakespeare and his humor. I was taught the different type a literal humor and about comedians I never knew about!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to you, if you were to take this course, is to never be late or miss any classes, because you will not know what is going on in your books you are assigned to read as a class. Always be ready for pop quizzes and to work well in a group for group projects ( there are many of them).
