    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you're not particularly interested in the subject, the professor is super enthusiastic and fun and he really makes you want to know more about what he's saying.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained incredible knowledge about the Greek myths. The homework is just reading the myths and the class is a lecture. I loved that style of teaching because if you just listen and take notes, it's easy to succeed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to do the reading and take more notes than what are on the PowerPoint in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because I was required to take it and I did not think I would like it. Of all the classes that fulfilled my humanities requirement, this seemed the least dreadful to me.

    Course highlights:

    The amount of real day-to-day life connections that are made in this class astonished me. Even small things like where the saying "the birds and the bees" came from. It is actually incredible to listen to the stories and explanations people came up with. I realized it was not so much about the Greek Gods themselves, as it was to explaining society before science took over. In addition, I happen to be taking an astronomy class right now, and a lot of astronomical names and constellations came from stories told by the Greeks.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Paying attention and taking notes during lectures is most important. Reading, although not all people like doing the reading, is also very important, and actually quite interesting. Personally, I would read the assigned texts after the lecture he told us they were due for. I did this because text written in the form of poetry can be confusing, and they use a lot of different names for the same people. The professor clears up all the confusion during his lectures, so I got a lot more out of the readings by reading them after he summarized them in class.
