    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a lot of fun! The professor really knows her stuff and cares about student success. The homework assignments and reading are a lot of fun as well! The projects were my favorite part of this class (as well as discussing Norse mythology).

    Course highlights:

    The projects were my absolute favorite portion of this class. There were two projects and two papers. The first project was a research project on an ancient culture, and the second was a story-telling project for the coyote myths (they are trickster tales). The second paper was my favorite, as there were many different choices for what type of paper we would like to do- a lot of them were creative in nature. In this course, I learned a lot about the characteristics of different types of mythological characters and how they all relate to each other, to the time period, and how they are important to us now!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading for this class and make sure the homework is done. There is only one test, which is the final, and it is over The Odyssey. However, there are a lot of pop quizzes over the reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it teaches a lot on world mythology in a fun way. We analyzed these myths and were able to gain a perspective on cultures that existed long ago. The teacher was very thorough and always pushed us to do our best work. She also wanted us to participate and collaborate with other students. She was very kind and helpful to anyone who asked for help.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about ancient cultures and their belief systems. I also learned a lot about group work in this class. We had presentations and I got to expand my knowledge on the cultures we studied by presenting/teaching about one culture. Despite not being a communications class we learned how to analyze and discuss different topics within a culture. It was definitely a worthwhile class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading. It is important that you read the assigned chapters and not just skim over them. Participation is very important too. The teacher encourages open discussion on the topics covered. Don't be afraid to discuss something if you think it could apply. She listens to your point and sometimes she might agree with the perspective that you can see.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was amazing. Originally took the course because I enjoyed the professor, but I gained a lot of knowledge on mythology and it sparked an interest I never knew I had.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Rannik is hilarious. The course is fun and easy going. Prepare to do a lot of writing, but it is a relaxing class and the best course I have taken so far. Do the work, show up and get an A.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all your assignments and the readings. If the professor does not feel like a majority of the class did the reading she assigned she will give a pop quiz. Enjoy yourself and participate.
