    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for anyone interested in writing efficient college essay! This course teaches the basics of college composition and leads right into 1102, which will also provide great writing strategies.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course was most definitely the practice. Having to write several different types of essays in quick succession will help you pick up experience on all kinds of writing- persuasive, research, etc. I learned exactly that- versatile writing skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would just recommend that you set aside time for this course. Writing a well-worded, well-organized college essay is no simple task. You'll need to put in real effort and concentration to succeed. As long as you put your mind to it, you'll do just fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course, though it includes excessive writing and reading, is a superb outlet for bookworms or lovers of literature. Often, articles were also lessons to those taking the class. Then, writing the essay for the articles would help reinforce the ideas taught to us. I loved the ability to think freely during the course.

    Course highlights:

    I loved being able to read a book (practically of my choice). I was given the opportunity to take time to study the book and write an essay about my take on the theme of the book. I was also allowed to change the prompt slightly so that I could focus it on the linguistics of the novel, which is what I would like to study in college. I learned many things about literature, as well as about myself during the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you must be able to dedicate your mind to the work. I believe that every student should fully immerse themselves in every essay, article, poem, and novel required of them to read or write. If this is done, the student's intelligence is sure to grow to great heights.
