    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course with this professor. This professor is very enthusiastic about her job, which makes the class interesting and the students more apt to learn. This course opened up a thirst for more knowledge in me. It made me realize that there is much about the world I do not know and so much to be discovered.

    Course highlights:

    Being introduced to so many pieces of literature that extended to all time periods is undoubtedly the highlight of this course for me. From day one I was able to apply the knowledge I learned in this course to my everyday life. I particularly enjoyed learning about the Epic of Gilgamesh, which is the first known piece of literature. It was very intriguing to me that some of the stories contained in this epic are stories that have been told to the modern world several times over, only in different forms. This course inspired me to do more reading of literary works. As soon as this course was completed, I read Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. I am now currently reading a classic historic novel, The Scarlet Pimpernel, which was published in 1905. This course gave me the inspiration and the tools to enjoy more literary works and to be able to notice subtle differences from different time periods, such as the style of language used.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    It requires attendance, note taking, studying, and most importantly effort. If you do all of these things, not only will you be successful in this course, but, more importantly, you will learn. You will learn about literature and how it is applicable to everyday life.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend this course if you enjoy reading. This course was mainly about reading and discussing short stories, most of the stories that we read were extremely interesting and I strongly enjoyed them.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new love for poetry. Literature 1000 focuses mostly on short stories but also focused on poetry. Before this course, I was not a fan of poetry, I found it to be monotonous, but the poetry that we read introduced to a new field of poetry that was interesting instead of boring.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you have to do the reading and take notes on what you read. By taking notes while reading, it's much easier to understand the stories.
