    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Fiedler thoroughly breaks down individual pieces of literature that helps us as students to comprehend the significance of the writing and how it pertains to the way we live today. Initially, I had no interest in any analysis of any form of literature until Professor Fiedler had taught us in a way that kept us engaged.

    Course highlights:

    The presentations of works that we seemed best fit for us. Throughout the presentation, it is evident that you will get to know each individual based on the writing they had chose. For example, a students had chosen the epic poem, Paradise Lost, based on their Christian beliefs, which they explained in their presentations. It had really intrigued us as a whole due to peers sharing their personal connections with the writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although you may believe it is not necessary, study when you have the time to spare. Despite the course not being too difficult, it required a few hours out of your week. Do not procrastinate and analysis your reading well enough to actually grasp what the author is saying to present the work properly. The readings are based well before the 1800s so it may be difficult to completely understand what the author is trying to express.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is suppose to be a course for Literature not a course about discrimination again another race. I did not pass this class because my professor was more interested in her own political views than the views of her students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned nothing I did not already know.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours
