    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher allows us to freely chase down leads upon interpretations with the source material without much criticism; however, we must be able to prove our theories with the text. She also freely allows us to draw connections to other literary and/or pop culture sources.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to see the various aspects of literature through the difference schools of thought (i.e. Psychoanalytical and Feministic views). I also gained the knowledge that every piece of literature is derived from a big collection of references, trends, and sources.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to always do the reading, be able to interpret literary works to the best of your ability, and be prepared to discuss your views on the works.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The ability to be able to creatively interpret works of culture gives students the feeling of accomplishment in their own abilities, and that is exemplified in the teacher's style and lessons.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained the ability to notice details and roles of life, such as the stereotypes that are frequent in literature and movies, that apply to the characteristics of real life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, a student needs to be able to effectively spot overarching themes and motives that are evident in literature, has to have the ability to creatively express their feelings, and be able to dedicate themselves to the reading that is required in order to understand the universal messages that are implied.
