    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Trzaskoma makes the course interesting, educational, and fun. It's absolutely necessary to attend every class, but you won't want to skip it regardless! If you like history, sex jokes, and odd stories, TAKE THIS CLASS!

    Course highlights:

    The course fulfills UNH's humanities (?) requirement, but it feels like a fun class, not a requirement. Steven Trzaskoma is hands-down the best professor I have had in my time here. You'll learn everything from basic geography to how classic greek myths have come to impact modern culture.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, I'd recommend a few things. 1. Get to know Dr. Trazskoma. He's funny and really will take the time to help you. 2. READ! You'll get 70s on the exams if you just attend class and listen, but if you keep up with the reading you will not even need to study come exam time. 3. It is SO important to attend every class. The exams are broken down into sections BY CLASS TIMES and what was discussed on which day. If you miss a class, you'll miss at least 7 questions out of a typical 50-60 which will really mess you up.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an great class and the professor makes the class interesting and enjoyable. The homework load isn’t bad because it’s all readings of the myths from Greek and Roman times. You get to learn about their culture through the myths and why they may of thought something was a certain way. This class is great to take for the general course requirement and I recommend it to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be the discussions in class. If you read the material that was assigned then the class becomes enjoyable and the myths start to make a little sense. The first in class that we learn though, is that there is no one myth. There can be many versions but there is no one myth. This means that the myths later on can get confusing but the lecture does and amazing job of helping clear up any confusion. And if there is still a problem then office hours are a great chance to ask the professor any questions you might have.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material. It does have some dull moments in the beginning but the material is important to the lecture and since there is not written homework in this course, the exams are the only grades. So my advice is to read the material, ask questions, take notes, and one study tip I have is have a friend read your notes and you tell them the myth/legend you learned in class. It will help in remembering all the different myths/legend and help distinguish them from each other.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is so interesting and fun. The professor is one of the funniest people I have met and makes the class that much more interesting. He will more than likely make fun of you, but it's friendly and hilarious.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge about myths and how the people used them in their daily lives. I also learned a lot about ancient Greek as a whole, which connected to a couple of my other classes at the time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you attend the lectures and do the readings. Reading is the only homework you'll have for this class. There are no essays, and only four tests that are all multiple choice.
