    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because it teaches you to explore a career field and delve into issues in that field. Dr. Synstelien is an amazing professor who is always willing to help students. In addition to being there for us in the classroom, she also offered us advice on advancing in our careers. For example, she told us about the importance of going internships and/or volunteer work - after all, employers aren't just going to be looking for a degree, but also your amount of experience in the field. She was just really dedicated to her students, and she showed genuine care and concern for us and our futures.

    Course highlights:

    At the beginning of every lecture, we would start by watching a TED Talk on various topics and writing journals, which consisted of the thesis, structure, and our opinion on the argument. Doing this activity consistently helped us to explore different topics, ranging from race issues to space exploration. It widened our eyes to the things going on in the world today, and it was a great way for the class to discuss.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely encourage any future students to ask the professor your questions. Whether it is simply for clarification or if you're just really stuck and don't know where to start, Dr. Synstelien can definitely help. At times, I would think for a long time and couldn't come up with anything to write about, but after just a 10 minute conversation with Dr. Synstelien, I'd have so many ideas! Just remember to always utilize you're teacher - their job is to help you succeed in their class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Besides the class itself, it is always important to have a great professor. Professor Keith Richter does an outstanding job reassuring students that they have what it takes to do a great job in his class. When explaining a new concept, Keith usually puts the content into variety of meanings to help us understand it differently. This course overall helps students understand the fundimendals of writing.

    Course highlights:

    Coming into this class, I never thought I was going to learn much. English wasn't really a difficulty, but I never was a fan in writing. I had many highlights in this course, but my favorite would be at the end of the semester; when I found out that I loved to write. Throughout the entire semester, I learned many techniques that would improve my writing. After mastering Writing and Research, I started to write anything and everything that came into my mind. Its almost like writing understood me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The one and only advice I would give a student planning on taking this course is to make sure they show up everyday. Keith Richter gives at least one advice every class period on how to become a great writer. If you are thinking, "I can probably ask one of my friends what happen in class," you're wrong. Keith explains it in a way that you would have to be in class to understand. He's never boring and always entertaining. There really isn't a point in missing class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is very good at guiding students through the course in a way that is respectful and you will walk away with knowledge that you previously lacked.

    Course highlights:

    My writing skills vastly improved. the course is essentially about writing so that's mainly what it is. For me it was perfect.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to always turn in the papers ON TIME. If you don't, above all else that what will hurt your grade the most.
