    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The flexibility of the essay prompts makes it much easier to write. There is no restraints on what we want to write as long as readings or films from class are incorporated.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this class was watching really inspiring films. I learned good writing revolves around the meaning not the level of vocabulary.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would actually read all the assigned readings because they really help with creating an outline for answering essay prompts.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course, mostly because of the professor. The course itself was interesting, and the readings were fun to do, but the professor really brought the course to life. He is very dynamic and interactive, and just a good presence to be around. I do not know of one student who dislikes him!

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I gained knowledge of how to write a good essay, and how to read a book or passage and actually gain something from it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up and make sure to participate and you should be fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Pacific Seminar 1 (PACS 1) introduces students to the intellectual life of the university by exploring the intersection of who we are as individuals and who we are as communities. The course engages the critical tension between individual rights and social responsibilities as that tension manifests in issues such as identity, equality, and sustainability, among others.

    Course highlights:

    PACS 1 is a shared intellectual experience, incorporating materials from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Students meet in small sections to discuss the readings and issues and develop their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the required textbooks! Participate in lectures and discussion groups!
