    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Shamiryan is able to engage with and aid students at all levels of ability and interest. Whether you need the course for transfer or are an enthusiastic student of literature, she will give you an excellent experience. Be prepared to learn, but know that she is always willing to help students who need it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were her insightful observations and explanations, and the way she fostered debate and creativity among the students. I learned a lot about how to express my ideas better in writing, and how to expect more of myself when it comes to those ideas. She taught me that you can argue any point as long as you do it well enough.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for class discussions. Read everything thoroughly and take notes. Speak in class, and do not be afraid to disagree with someone, as long as you do so politely. Take thorough notes in class, and when you go to write your essays you will find the task much easier. Ask her for help if you get stuck writing, do not keep bashing your head against the wall.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Overall a decent class, but discussions on literature seemed relatively one-sided: it was hard to propose or argue my interpretation of the literature if it conflicted with the professor's

    Course highlights:

    More experience in annotating and note-taking on literature; read some more Shakespeare poetry; final presentation was on any author you have read at least two works by (even if they weren't read in this class)

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your assignments, be ready to talk about what you read
