    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Baraw is so intelligent! He really knows his stuff. The course is extremely interesting. I left every class having an "aha!" moment. This class is an introductory course to any English major. Therefore, it is definitely intense. There are a lot of terms to memorize and be able to apply. Many complained about this throughout the course, but for anyone destined to study English, this should be an easy A.

    Course highlights:

    Definitely take this course with Professor Baraw if you can. He is so smart! While every professor reads different literature, there is always a mix of short stories, poetry, and usually at least one novel. That being said, you read a wide range of literature, which is useful for every English major. I learned a lot of literary terms that I did not know before.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take Professor Baraw if you can! If you haven't been able to tell already, he's my favorite professor. If you're strong in English (aka an English major) this should be an easy course. In essays/assignments, support your thesis well. Use correct grammar. Go to class. It's a small class, so attendance counts!
