    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very enthusiastic about the subject he's teaching and is very easy to work with. However, he has a tendency to ramble on about where to find study materials which some students may find redundant.

    Course highlights:

    I learned alot about where different running themes of storytelling came from and how each story trope came from human perspective.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to take diligent notes. The class is very note based intensive. But also make sure to sit back and enjoy the storytelling. You'd be surprised how much Greek myth you don't know.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class provides a great overview of myths and legends of various cultures, both past and present, and the instructor lays out the material in a way that is easily understood and memorable.

    Course highlights:

    One of the biggest things that I gained from taking this course was to understand that the surroundings of a culture greatly influence the how the myths and legends are born from that culture.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always ask the instructor if you are stuck, because he is more than willing to explain further. Also, the assignments take a fair bit of time, so it is best to get a head start on them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As someone who has a passion for stories and myths, this class was an amazing fit for me. Mr. Freeman is an excellent and competent teacher who made the class interesting and engaging. It is recommended to have the textbook on hand, though it can be rented instead of bought. Be prepared to do a steady pattern of writing, but everything pertains to the subjects at hand and are for the most part explained in class. The course covers a variety of cultures and myths and gives an analysis on the symbolism and structure of myths themselves. It is definitely a fun and fascinating class and an excellent one to take if someone needs a humanities or an elective for their degree.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Freeman is an excellent teacher. He has a calm, steady demeanor that welcomes students and is always willing to sit down and talk with someone if they have any questions whatsoever. The class has a nice, steady clip and a constant stream of information; however, despite the influx of reading, cultures, and assorted information, the class is neither rushed or oversaturated. Each section is given what due diligence can be given to it, and students write one to two assignments per week on average.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep on top of the work!! While it may seem easy or tedious, put effort into the weekly assignments and make sure not to fall behind. Mr. Freeman has an information-packed class, which is fine if one keeps up with the course, but if they fall behind then it become exceedingly difficult and nigh overwhelming to catch up.
