    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course dives into American Literature in a way that makes you realize that American pop culture as we know it today is highly influenced by the literature works and ideas that has made American Literature so relevant up to this day.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would definitely be learning about American Realism which was the depiction of things such as literature and art. American Realism started in the nineteenth century and made its way to the twentieth century. The depictions of art and literature reflected that of an ordinary person which gave it the essence of something anyone could relate to.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to always evaluate what is right in front of you whether it be a piece of literature or art. Once you evaluate it then you should give your initial thoughts on it so that when you discover the real story behind it you can see if you more or less had an idea on what it was about.
