    3-5 hours

    Read the books, think outside the box.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is very funny and she makes sure you understand. Most of the time you discuss what you read out of the certain book she has for the class. She informs you about the final paper a very long time before its due.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were usually the talks about the reading book. Also when we watched films in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the books she has assigned and keep up the pace. Do not fall behind

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took Gilmore for Apocalyptic Literature and it changed my methodology for evaluating and thinking critically of literature. This is true for the other two classes I took with him as well, but his special topics courses are so very interesting. He usually changes what his LIT classes' topic will be, such as when he did Ghost Stories of Northeast Florida, but he is very engaged in the community and influences his students to become so as well. I learned a lot about the history of Jacksonville and now feel passionate about my community and becoming involved in the preservation and betterment of Jacksonville.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing I gained from this course was that "Apocalyptic" did not necessarily have to mean the end of the world in the classical sense. We read literature that explored the apocalyptic end of human engagement in the world or in individual lives. It did not have to mean grand scheme, it could be one human's personal apocalypse in his world.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This course will open your eyes to social constructs that define our life. Sometimes with, and sometimes without, these constructs an ending may exist that leaves you questioning the meaning of live, even if all life on Earth still exists. It looked deeper into the meaning of life and the ending of a world.
