This class was tough.
This course is required for some students who wish to transfer to either a UC or CSU. However, if students are looking for a challenging course to encourage expanding their own worldviews, this course may be the course for those students. As a disclaimer, I actually took this course at Clovis Community College, which is not listed but is in the same district as Fresno City College.
English 3 encourages students to challenge their own thought process and perspectives on modern issues. In addition, this course has encouraged me as not only a student but a life-long learner to seek connections between issues or topics and to dive into and embrace the complexity of an issue. This course encourages students to not view issues in a polarized manner but encourages them to view issues as nuanced. Although this course was undoubtedly one of the most difficult courses that I have taken so far, it has undoubtedly been one of the most fulfilling and beneficial courses that I have taken.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course and gain the most out of this course, most students should have a good handle on formatting, citations, grammar, organization, and other basic college level writing concepts (which are covered in previous courses).
