    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Learning how to write a properly structured research paper within the Humanities division prepares students for higher education levels. The course enhances critical thinking skills, college-level writing skills, and teaches students how to read and understand literature beyond a basic high school education level.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read and understand poetry from all genres. I also learned how to read and have a deeper understanding of Shakespeare's plays. Finally, I learned how to properly analyze a short story and create a college-level paper, complete with sources, and cited and structured in MLA format.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of your readings early for the course. Arrive at the class prepared to discuss phrases, sentences, and characters at a much deeper level of understandingAsk your professor for help and guidance if you do not understand the requirements for the papers.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great class and blows your mind by changing the way you used to look at old stories or movies. It's not too hard to pass, but you have to do all the reading to understand.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about Disney movies and changing them to the real story. For example The Lion king is just a Disney version of Hamlet.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read everything. And remember to turn things in on time.
