    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Lisa Suter is absolutely one of the best professors at MSU Denver. She is great at helping students find a path that leads to their majors or minors.

    Course highlights:

    We wrote almost a 20 page paper with a topic we chose ourselves. I learned how to effectively use the library on campus as well as the Writing Center. We also got to learn how to use scholarly journals and articles to further establish our credibility when writing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since it is a required course, I recommend meeting up with the professor and just talking over about the topic you chose. You definitely need to set time up with yourself and write the paper, since that is what this class is about. When reading the required texts, mark the text! Use sticky notes and write in the margins. This class is about time management so learning how to do that at the VERY beginning of the course is crucial. However, you still need to have fun in the course so when writing your paper, choose a topic you absolutely have a passion for.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is excellent for reading purposes. You have to learn how to research and write arguments. There is a 15-page paper due at the end of the class. You get to pick your own topic, so you want to pick a subject you could write many pages about. There are assignments and activities throughout the class that help you discover what to look for to find a reliable source, to form an argument, to develop ethos, pathos, and logos in an argument, and to get peer reviews on your work. This course was helpful in that it gives a rounded education on the art of research and argument writing. A lot of time is needed to take this course. The 15 page paper alone takes up most of the second half of the course. The assignments could take a long time to do , depending on the subject for the week. There are also discussion board questions that you must answer each week, with 3 responses to fellow students for each question.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the different types of arguments, how to properly use ethos, logos, and pathos to convey your opinion, and how to narrow down your research topic so that everything you write about pertains to your topic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you put the appropriate amount of time into the course. If your writing style is different than argumentative (mine is science and technical), then you will need to spend extra time or send each segment into your professor for advice. Background knowledge in grammar and spelling is needed, as this class relies heavily on the ability to use correct language to persuade the reader of your topic.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class consisted of analyzing and researching a topic that you would then write a 15+ page paper about. The professor demonstrated professionalism while keeping the class upbeat but also allowing for students to have a deeper connection with the course.

    Course highlights:

    A forever memorable highlight of the course would be picking the topic you wanted to write about and just becoming extremely fascinated with it. From the professor teaching the class more proper transitions and best analyzing websites to teaching yourself about your topic, it made you never want the research or class to be over with.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find the topic you want to write your paper on the week after he tells you the genre in which the topic must fall under. This will allow you to get a head start and use all his research methods for your paper rather than researching for a topic you will not end up using.
