    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend it because I learned the most about life in general than in any other class I've ever taken. It also helped me with my public speaking ability and my critical thinking skills!

    Course highlights:

    This course covers a wide variety of interesting topics including government, education, language, wealth and poverty, and gender and culture. It draws from a large textbook with a plethora of writings of notable historical figures such as Plato, Fredrick Douglas, Noel Postman and so fourth.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the selection assigned and always say something in the group discussion!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Siegfried's material is always thought provoking, always novel and always fascinating. You are not required to participate in class discussions, but you will need to take notes if you want to write adequate essays. There is no homework, no tests, & no attendance. Only lectures and essays.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned how to make new connections between any two, three, or more literary pieces, & how to use rhetorical tropology to view and interpret these texts in new ways.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Two things... Take notes. Attend class. That is all. The professor does not care whether you attend his lectures or not. If you don't attend, then you will have no idea how to write your essays. If you resort to cheating and try to find something or someone online to assist you, you will find nothing. All of Siegfried's material is new, and nothing he teaches has been published or used elsewhere. So he is completely and entirely unconcerned with plagiarism. If you desire a passing grade, attend the lectures.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was the first of my college courses that I felt truly challenged and excited about. Danner is an amazing professor and her wit and passion for her students and subject matter shows in every class. This class was by far my most satisfying and fun.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed hearing my professor's perspectives on the contents explored in the novels she chose, if only because I respected her opinion and how she made everyone feel validated without backing down from her own point. This way of philosophical debate and thought sharing really inspired me and taught me how to relate to other people in ways that don't demean or devalue my opinion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this class seriously. For most classes, and this one in particular, as long as professors see your desire to succeed and your drive, they will help you in every way they can. Sometimes it is easy to see your faculty as the enemy after a defeat, but it's so much more productive to remember that they are your allies and their only purpose is to help you succeed and expand your education.
