    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would certainly and wholeheartedly recommend this course by this professor. Professor Ryner's lectures are extremely insightful, and the papers you write in the class are a great tool to grow your skills, knowledge, and talents. Professor Ryner is always open and willing to help you not only in this class and its assignments but also in your growth as a whole. If you have ever enjoyed Shakespeare, take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I not only learned about the great depth and richness of Shakespeare and his writing, but also about how to better get meaning from any text from any time period, or any media of any sort. We analyzed words, plays, movies, and even ourselves at some points. The in-depth history and context of Shakespeare's time was also fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you know the plot of a play before reading or watching it, because sometimes you could get lost in the Shakespearian language if you don't know what's going on. Also, really put your heart into writing the papers of this course; Professor Ryner's office will help you make them into masterpieces if you let him. Thus, go to his office hours.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very fun to take, but requires the ability to see past the performance and think of the meaning/motivation behind each directorial choice. Discussion is a major component and drives most of the classes.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher is very passionate about the subject and very approachable anytime you have a question.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You may benefit from having some experience with theater or what goes into putting on a play. Don't be afraid to go see the professor during office hours, especially leading up to submitting a paper.
