    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the literature read and the material covered broadens the writing and reading ability of students. Specifically, this course enhances close reading and literary analysis skills. As well as, the professor is a very knowledgable scholar who wants students to understand and enjoy the work that is completed.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course was the individual research project. Each student was tasked with writing a research essay, on a topic of their choice, through a Confucian lens. Particularly, this project taught me how to effectively integrate multiple sources in a body of work, and learn how to apply Confucian ideas to an abstract topic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students considering this course to be prepared to write lengthy essays from the beginning--approximately 5-8 pages. As well as, I would advise that they begin acquiring knowledge on Confucianism.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a foundation course. Most courses require you to write up your findings. If you don't have a solid foundation in writing it is hard to succeed in other courses such as Sociology, Psycology, English or Research.

    Course highlights:

    Proper formatting, how to paraphrase, Structuring a paper. the purpose of your Thesis statement. Transitional phrasing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need extra help then don't take an accelerated/shortened semester course. These courses have an essay due each week and 2-3 readings with annotations due each class as well. If you need time to digest the information take a full semester course. On a shortened semester the last two weeks are about 9 hours of extra work outside of class. In a 15 week course, it would be easily manageable.
