    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Crane, or Chip as he liked to be called, was engaging and thought provoking. He made learning about Russian Fairy Tales engaging and related a lot of it to concepts from fairy tales students grew up hearing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that a lot of the same types of fairy tales are from all over the world. There are tales like "Cinderella" or "Beauty and the Beast" in several different cultures. I also learned that fairy tales can be used as a form of propaganda to indoctrinate ideas or ways of thinking into civilians from a young age. I also learned that fairy tales do not always have to be written down or spoken, but that they can just as easily be reflected in artwork.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read over the slides, attend the mandatory recitations and read over the articles and fairy tales you are given. Chip makes the course just about as easy as it can be, so make sure you follow his advise and you should have next to no problem getting an A.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not necessarily recommend this course unless you have a decent background on Russian culture. The course focused on many fine details on Russian folklore that were difficult to understand coming in with little background knowledge. Although definitely interesting, the knowledge I left the class with was not practical or useful to the real world in my opinion.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better understanding of the dynamics of Russian culture. I learned not only the distinction between English and Russian literature, but the similarities as well. The highlights of the course included debating the meanings behind the fairytales and the connections made to what was happening in Russian during the time period of the story.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prior to taking the course, I would urge you to immerse yourself in the basics of Russian culture. A solid understanding of the culture and the struggles of Russia would be a huge asset. Do not take this course if you are not comfortable with numerous reading assignments weekly. Lastly, participation in this course is essential to succeeding.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a fun and interesting. I am a bio major and enjoyed the change of pace it gave me. You learn interesting things about a different culture, and you get to read and watch cool fairytales.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed all of the readings we had because they were different but interesting. It was also fun to watch the film version of some of them.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go to class and do the readings. The readings are really important since the class is all about Russian fairytales. The tests ask questions that aren't all straightforward, so make sure you understand the material from class and the readings.
