    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course, it introduced me to a whole novel of authors I would have otherwise ever considered. It was a delight to be enlightened by the words of authors such as Moliere, Dostoevsky, and many great ones.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me to further increase my already fast reading pace, press through difficult reads without just giving up on them, and fortify my analysis and discussion skills. I loved the reading list, and found it to be refreshing and suitable for a 6-week summer session.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is perfect for summer sessions. I recommend however, to ensure that it is your only course (if possible). Be prepared to read numerous pages on a short period of time, and to write about and discuss them thoroughly as well. Be also prepared to laugh and learn. This course was fun, and one I will always remember.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course, because it challenges your critical thinking skills, and teaches you to analyze a text on a higher and deeper level. I loved taking this during a six-week summer period, because it kept me satiated with words that filled my need to read and relax during the summer, while leaving me inspired for more interesting works to discover. Readings were long, and quizzes were issued the very next class. It was exciting, challenging, and overwhelming, but still exciting.

    Course highlights:

    This course broadened my horizons in terms of literature. As an avid reader,I was at a point at which i desired to dive deeper into authors who would stimulate my mind on a depth i had never encountered and I found exactly that with the readings in this class. Among all i learned,I even developed an affinity for short plays, and my favorite were Dostoevsky's "Dollhouse" and Moliere's "Tartuffe" Both reading were insightful in the sense that they opened my heart up to new intellectual perspectives on Love, and spirituality I never once considered.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not hesitate. Be ready to read constantly, grow, learn, and be forever changed. This course will introduce you to another side of literature you've never explored.
