    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Introduction to Literature focused on the archetype of the Femme Fatale was a really engaging experience, and how she is portrayed in the different kinds of art and media.

    Course highlights:

    We specifically studied the Femme Fatale in detail, and what are the characteristics of what makes it such a powerful embodiment of the woman both culturally and socially. It opens new perspectives to the typical patriarchal system.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really fun to explore. You will encounter the Femme Fatale archetype in various historical contexts as well as cultures to modern times.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Paquette was one of my favorite professors. She was engaging, and fun, and encouraged us to make our own connections from the text to real-world situations.

    Course highlights:

    I was able, after taking the course, to more thoroughly read whatever book or piece of literature, to pick out the details that would otherwise be skipped over. Basically, she taught us to read with purpose, and to be honest, it was the most fun I've ever had. My particular LIT-2000 class was based on what makes a hero, and I learned that it's okay to see a character that most would call a villain as more of an anti-hero, you just have to be prepared to defend your position.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you actually read the book when you're supposed to. I had a couple situations where I had to use Spark notes because I was unprepared, and the feeling of rushing and anxiety of "Oh no, are these going to help me answer the reading questions she gave us?" are not fun for anybody.
