    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was a very harsh grader and sucked the fun right out of English class. I have always loved English, until this class which made me rethink my entire career.

    Course highlights:

    I really didn't learn anything from the professor. If I had to pick something, I would say that I learned not to let one person dictate my future. I nearly changed my major after this class, but I learned that just because I didn't mesh well with one professor, doesn't mean I shouldn't pursue a career in the English field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is manageable, but the professor is not.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While this course is a requirement for every underclassman, Dr. Knoll brings a passion and enthusiasm for the subject. You cover three units throughout the semester including Fairy Tales, Shakespeare, and Myths.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new perspective on the fairy tales we have all hard. Dr. Knoll has you read different retellings which reflect greatly on ideas of time periods they were written in. Neil Gaiman is a wonderful storyteller and a very interesting author to learn about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, read, read your assigned daily readings. This will help you with short weekly quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Elizabeth Ames is an amazing professor with such great enthusiasm. The material covered in the course is absolutely intriguing on every level.

    Course highlights:

    The most important thing that I discovered through this course, is a love for writing. You are truly able to let your creative juices flow. My favorite aspect of the course was when we were tasked with writing a play that was based on a Greek Myth. This play was incredibly fun to write and allowed so much freedom.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of all the material! There are a lot of myths, short stories and poems that you will cover so make sure that you know them inside and out. That is by far the main focus of the class and if you can do that, then you will most definitely succeed!
