    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely interesting. You learn a lot about history, art, psychology, and sociology, and all of it happens under an outline of monster theory. The professor is amusing and loves what he does, so it becomes easy to be invested in the course.

    Course highlights:

    Lord Byron was a sexist playboy and the inspriration for the modern vampire. Most monsters have daddy issues. Monsters represent societal and cutural fears and, as long as those fears still exist, a monster will keep coming back. This course teaches tiny details and how they relate to a society as a whole. It allows students to understand the world we live in a lot better and why it exists the way it does.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Simply completing the assigned reading will almost guarantee you a good grade in the course. It helps to take the class with friends, as theory is easier to understand if you can talk it through.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is about monsters, or should I say, "Your most desired secrets!" Doc, aka Michael, is a fantastic professor. You'll learn about all kinds of monsters and what makes a monster, a monster.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much how monsters reflect our society and political views.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you take this course, come with an open mind. Just because the class seems fun does not mean you can slack off. Think critically. Relate the course to the real world. There are monsters out there. I warned you!
