    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Despite the opinion that the course material is dry and difficult, Professor Fisher brought the texts to life during his lectures. He related the works to their historical contexts and delved into their relevance to the human experience. He was a very good lecturer, and I found myself frequently fascinated by what he was saying.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal about the evolution of language -- be it the type of words and letters that used to be in existence, or the types of struggles writers sought to convey during the time they were writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to do all of the readings and to attend all the lectures given for further insight. Close read the works as best as you can, and do not be afraid to mark up your book because of notes and observations make regarding the text.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it truly challenged me as a writer. The lack of prompts forces you to pinpoint your own interests, to craft your own arguments about what stands out to you in literature that is truly difficult. It was not a breeze of a class, but it was worth every challenging sentence. Even if you hate Medieval texts, you will leave this class a better writer.

    Course highlights:

    This course left me with a new way to look at the world, both past and present, while challenging me as a writer. Every lecture Dr. Fisher gave left you thinking, questioning, and marveling at that which once seemed bland. He is, by far, one of the best lecturers I have had while at UCLA. Incredibly friendly, intelligent, and always willing to help you understand the material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is so incredibly important to do all the assigned reading. Dr. Fisher's lectures are extremely thorough, but if you don't want to find yourself struggling to cram knowledge of every piece of literature into your head at the end of the quarter then just do the reading when it is assigned. Doesn't matter if you don't understand what you're reading, he'll cover the important bits in lecture, but do read beforehand.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the Professor is absolutely revolutionary to one's attitude towards learning English. The course provides a perfect blend of the history of the English language whilst exploring aspects of ancient heroism and epic poetry.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was definitely the Professor herself, but also the subject matter. Reading Beowulf amongst a mind like the professor I had who encouraged any type of thinking as long as respectful was very different to experience. Emphasis was placed upon actual learning rather than grades, which was truly refreshing!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to attend class and go to office hours! This is actually key to succeeding within any class, as you build relationships with Ta's and professors. Furthermore, attending class really gives you the opportunity to hear the bright minds around you at work and ask questions that instigate beautiful conversations!
