    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you bother to do the reading, Lit Hum is one of the most valuable courses at Columbia. This will be one of the last times you can spout off about the classics without making everyone around you think that you're a pretentious moron, so enjoy it.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't come from a strong high school, so I was reading many of the texts for the first time. Having actually read Virgil, Cervantes, Woolf, etc. allowed me to see most literature and art much more richly -- it opened up a world of resonances and allusions that still inform my interpretation of the world around me.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't skip the reading. You'll be better prepared for each class and will find the discussions much more interesting when you've actually read the source material. Also, if you're coming from a less-than-privileged educational background, this can be a crash course in interpreting denser texts -- and that skill will serve you well in a variety of disciplines.
