    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course has definitely amped my ciritcal thinking skills, writing abilities, and comprehensive skills. Without this course and the professor that taught it, I am not sure where my writing skills would have landed.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights in taking this course was learning how to argue. I was able to put my thoughts onto paper, refute and defend them, and finally prove why my argument was most sound and valid. Clearing my papers of any fallacies or illogical arguments is something I also developed. This skill follows me till this day and I am forever grateful being given the opportunity to take this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Expect writing (as this is intended to hone and smoothen out your writing abilities) and do not procrastinate. It is easy to do so, but just be sure to follow the instructions of the professor and think of ideas before you start writing so that way you have an array of topics to choose from when writing your essays. Also, do not be afraid to ask questions or attend office hours! If you are showing interest in a good grade, the professor might recognize that and understand you are giving your best efforts for a successful grade overall.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone who truly wants to learn how to write and think critically. At the same time, one should be willing to work very hard and dedicate time to the course material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze underlying tones that I otherwise would have never figured out while reading novels and articles. I also understood the beauty and mindfulness behind the rhetoric of historic writers. The reading experience can be so much more rewarding while taking this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I always advice students to let this class become an important part of your everyday life. One has to be willing to dedicate the time and effort while reading assigned articles and books. Be aware of the context and deeper meanings withing writings and how authors express their arguments.
