    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class taught me how to think in different terms for each and every essay. Most of the class consists of short essays and interpreting based on previous readings. Each essay required you to take on a different perspective, whether you agreed with it or not, and argue your given perspective.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course would have to be the instructor who gave back great feedback and was fair on all of his gradings. If you did not receive a grade you thought you should get, it was clear why .

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to do lots of reading and interpreting. There is an aspect of critical thinking involved so be prepared to break down all the readings and give your own thoughts and perspectives.
