Pretty easy, overall.
I really enjoyed this class, because despite it being a university requirement, it is far from generic! Since Professor Zomorodian wrote her dissertation on Shakespeare, the class has a lot of interactive assignments that involve theater and the fine arts! Yet, you are still able to pick your topic of choice for your research paper, which is really nice.
The First Year of Studies sponsored our admission to a production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" performed by The Actors From The London Stage, as well as a Shakespearian acting workshop taught by one of the actors! Also, we got to tour the Snite Museum and Hesburgh Library (for help with our research papers), and were given class days off to "make up" the time spent on these outings.

Advice for students:
My advice is to really try to enjoy and take advantage of the performances, workshops, and museums visits, but mostly, to really take advantage of the resources presented for the course! These include peer review days, booking the Writing Center in advance, gathering research materials during class time at the library, and revising the papers based on the feedback you receive (as you are able to revise and resubmit the papers for a better grade)!
