    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is highly engaging and very interesting. You are required to read a certain amount before every class but as long as you don't fall behind its fine. There are occasionally quizzes on the reading but none of them are hard as long as you read what you were supposed to. There is a midterm and final paper but both are take home and there are multiple options. Overall it's not a hard class as long as you participate.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this class was our unit on "Taming of the Shrew". We read parts of the play at home and then in class we watched a movie of it. We would pause the movie every few scenes and discuss the important part. It probably took the course of two weeks and at the end of the unit we had to write a short paper. It really helped me to discern Shakespearean language and write well rounded papers on plays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get behind on reading, as long as you keep up with everything it won't be too difficult. You don't really have any tests so there are no study tips to give you but in regards to papers just make sure you annotate everything you read, and being an active part of discussions really helped me.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very interesting class. As long as you enjoy reading then it is really easy. You have a short reading to complete before class and then you discuss it in class. The professor is very interactive and does his best to get everyone to discuss. All of the papers are take home and the few quizzes he gives are really easy.

It really helped me to discern Shakespearean language better and to write papers on plays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get behind on reading, as long as you keep up with everything it won't be too difficult. You might get a couple pop quizzes but they'll all be on the reading and none will be too hard. You don't really have tests so there's no study tips to give but in regards to papers just make sure you annotate what you read, and being an active part of the discussions really helped me.
