    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a required class, and this professor is particularly tough - which guarantees a solid learning experience, if you do your part.

    Course highlights:

    This semester, the theme was monsters. Expect a different theme each year. Within that theme, we studied summaries, critical reading, rhetorics, analyses, and syntheses.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Gary Enns assigns a lot of work, due at kind of odd times throughout the work. Make sure you stay on top of it. He can be a nitpicky grader with essays, which overall helps you write better, but just make sure to pay special attention to the feedback he gives you and apply it to your future writings. The quizzes tend to be super easy, so no fret.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because the professor does a marvelous job of integrating challenging literary concepts into assignments without overloading her students. This professor wants you to succeed, so she will invest extra time and effort into making sure you understand the course material.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is getting to learn about different cultures while practicing literature. One of the papers for this course is based off of two of Euripides' plays, which requires the student to do research on ancient Greek societies in order to comprehend the meaning behind the plays. This is just one example of how the professor uses the literature to teach about cultures.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, do all of the reading when you are supposed to and work on your papers in a timely manner. What has helped me the most in this course is finding a few classmates to have intellectual discussions with about the literature.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a great teacher who is very enthusiastic about english. This class is also tough, but you learn so much about writing.

    Course highlights:

    I have a much better understanding on how to write well developed essays, and I feel confident in my writing abilities. You get tons of experience with writing in this class, and it will help for your future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would make sure to check online for any homework or reading that needs to be done, since our homework is usually posted there. Also, don't procrastinate on your papers! Even though she gives extensions on the essays, I would save those days for when you really will need to use them.
