    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it was extremlely engaging. The professor relied on class discussion about the readings he assigned and you get to learn a lot from your peers and also from the professor about their respective opinions and insights.

    Course highlights:

    When I took this course, the class focus was on New York so all our readings for the semester was tailored to New York City and it's essence. We read from many New York native writers. Most notably, Colson Whitehead's The Colossus of New York was masterful. He magnified the minutiae of New York living and really provided a perspective of the city that is easy to overlook if you are just living in it. We

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give is to really dig into the readings. All the assignments are based on the readings so to do well in the class analyzing the readings in depth is beneficial. The professor edits the papers thoroughly and is very open to questions so feel free to ask about what you can specifically do to improve your writing and he would be more than happy to tell you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though this course is mandatory, I would recommend it because it is light work. In order to pass this course, with an A, you would have to read the assigned readings and make sure you complete the essays and homework's.

    Course highlights:

    I read a lot of books/ plays. And the ones that I liked the most were the plays by Shakespeare (Hamlet), as well as the essays by James Baldwin.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. Make sure you stay on top of your reading. 2. Make sure someone reviews your essay before you submit it. 3. Make sure you participate in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course allows you to think deeper and analyze the reading materials. Instead of just choosing theses from the books, you write essays on what the authors' theses are and compare them instead of the stories themselves. Also wrote an essay on whether the author agreed with his own quote in the book. This opens up a new perspective on the authors' purposes and strengthens your reading and writing skills!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course are effective research and essay writing. I learned to use academic sources to write a research paper that talked about money in America. This builds up skills and abilities to write better convincing papers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't plagiarize and try to think outside the box! Try to write papers that are simple, clear, and effective instead of trying to sound smart and complex.
