    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a requirement for the liberal arts program. Although this class was required to accomplish my degree requirements, I would recommend it to any student looking to explore an interactive course where reading, discussion, and contrasting opinions is a major aspect to the class.

    Course highlights:

    The material we covered in this course was very interesting. We covered literature works that range from mythology, to fiction based on historic events. My favorite part of this course was having the opportunity to discuss what we read in class and openly expressing our opinions of how we translated the text.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, you need to read the material provided. This is not a "SparkNote" class. To understand the material, you need to analyze different aspects of the text and be able to interpret it in your own way.

    I learned a lot about writing in regards to different types of literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend doing your reading and don't procrastinate on the writing assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would HIGHLY recommend this course! Professor Obach did an excellent job of teaching the materials and really connects with her students. She didn't just lecture the whole class period, but would get the whole class involved in each and every lecture.

    Course highlights:

    There were several different areas that were covered in this course. I really liked how the students were very involved in the way that she taught each section. For the poetry unit, we each picked out our own poem and lead our own discussion with the class, when we were first assigned the poetry unit I thought it was going to be awful, but way Professor Obach taught it and helped us throughout our discussions turned out to be pretty fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to get a good grade, you will need to talk and be active in class discussions. The things that Professor Obach asks though are quite easy to answer and you will always want to be involved in the discussion.
