    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    English 380 or topics in literature is a highly varied course that can cover something as simple as short stories to books as challenging as Moby Dick. The English 380 class that I took on summer 2015 covered the latter and legitimately reading the novel without the aid of can be a challenge due to the writer's elaborate and lofty writing style. He digresses into entire chapters devoted to the history of whale hunting

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were Melville's extremely lofty writing style and his extensive coverage on the history of whaling. The book also heavily uses religious imagery and may have very well been the inspiration for the movie Jaws. Most interesting is that Moby Dick was allegedly based on a real-life incident where a whale attacked and sank a ship.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not rely on Actually do the reading. Show up to class on time (2 absences lowers a student's grade by a letter), participate, complete all assignments by deadline, and take notes. You should be fine.
