    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Debra Brown is a very caring teacher. She focuses a lot on research papers, but she doesn't let you go in alone. She breaks up the papers, sets up meetings, and helps delegate what is and isn't good for your paper. She doesn't guide you to think a certain way, she teaches how to think. She challenges you to defend your arguments, but on your own terms.

    Course highlights:

    The meetings we had outside of class. I learned that if you truly know what to put into your paper, and even allow others to critique your thoughts, you can come to a well educated decision. I learned how to express my thoughts, and really thats what composition was really about for me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it, go to the meetings early, and really dive into your own mind about how you feel about certain issues and topics. Also, grammar is going to have to be learned on the fly, because comp 1 was supposed to get you past the basics, so she might expect you to know little more grammatically than you may have learned, so be prepared, and not scared to ask questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because the professor cares about and if you need help he is more than happy to assist you. He just a genuine person and he's class is really exciting.

    Course highlights:

    In this class we actually got to create our own website and about the pros and cons for future jobs in 10 years based on my major. I learned about future jobs in 10 years pertaining to broadcasting and how it is going to be more competitive and technology based so you learn about my future careers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think you have to show up to class everyday, participate in the discussion, do a lot of research on your topic and ask the professor for help because he's going to help you. The assignment took the whole semester so its at your own pace.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course as a dual enrollment, online course. It was a great experience with excellent advice from the professor! She's a bit tough on the grading and comments, but iron sharpens iron. She definitely helped improve my writing skills.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was coming out of the course with a beautiful senior thesis paper! It took a lot of dedication, time, and hard work, but it was worth it. I know have an extensive knowledge of how to write a 15 page paper, find excellent sources, and site them correctly in multiple different formats.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put aside time to work on your papers! Writing cannot be rushed, so make sure you have enough time to brainstorm, write, and edit.
