    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is dedicated to teaching you as well as making sure that you can move onto other courses. He will work with you on any writing you show him. He will also help you to analyze and understand any literature that you need assistance in interpreting. This course is one of the most beneficial for any student looking to improve his/her reading/analytical skills.

    Course highlights:

    This course introduced not only an analysis of the literature provided, but an analysis of bigger ideas. For example, in reading a story about growing up, we were called to highlight the types of subliminal messages given to us as children, or the ways in which people derive personality traits from simple experiences. In this course, I learned not only to be a better reader, but to be learn more from things outside of literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have any trouble, you must speak to the professor. He is there to help and does a great job of helping. You must actually read the literature. You must avoid skimming or getting notes online. This class will set you up so that you'd never need to use another person's notes. Be active. Participate in class discussions. In this class, every question is worthy and every comment is valued. By participating and reading, you can get the most out of this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class, especially if writing isn't a strength of yours. This class will force you out of your comfort zone in the writing department. With essays due every two weeks or so, you will find your writing skills inevitably improving. I am very glad I took this class and strongly recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    Taking this course, I gained skills in essay structure as well as vocabulary. I honestly think this was the most impacting English class I have taken since maybe middle school. Your vocabulary and structure skills will be put to the test as well as your ability to create multi page essays on maybe minimal topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    First thing, create a relationship with the teacher. Go to her office, and just introduce yourself. Professors love seeing a student take that extra mile and as a result they will work with you a little more if needed. Second, check your grade every two days or so. Sometimes teachers lose papers, or simply do not put grades in immediately. Make sure nothing is missing from your grade and if there is bring it to the teacher's attention. Third, form relationships with your classmates. Just talking to them will cause you to open your mind more which will automatically make you a better writer. Also, if there is a hard assignment, it will make you feel ten times better if you talk to your classmates and understand you aren't the only one going through it. So, basically form relationships with teachers, classmates, and check your grades often.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved EGL 1020, not only for the countless intellectual challenges it posed but also because I had a wonderful professor who entrusted students to chase after intellectual fulfillment and safely share controversial perspectives. Through this class, I was able to take a deeper dive into the thoughts of the varied authors who shared essays, poetry, and other prose, push myself to think in one's shoes, and apply whatever I learned into my own writing and speaking skills--all in pursuit of personal growth.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course involve being challenged to write a research paper on a controversial topic, with an emphasis on being as persuading as possible, and sharing that research with fellow classmates. Moreover, I loved being encouraged during each class to share and listen to the opinions of my classmates as we explored a new literary work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course, I would encourage you to prioritize your time, be open to sharing and listening to contrasting opinions, and to enjoy yourselves while challenging your minds to explore the unknowns.
