    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I constantly rub this class in the face of my friends, making sure they know their dire mistake of declining the opportunity to be taught by Ms. Byrne. She is witty and the human embodiment of a paradox. Her class yields no surprises, yet she keeps the class on their toes. She is the Queen of Sarcasm with a smattering of cynicism, yet cares deeply for all of her students and constantly checks in to see if we're all mentally sound. The course itself is interesting enough, but it is truly Ms. Byrne that keeps us coming back for more.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to be an active reader, to read with questions in mind and to be on the lookout for literary devices. Of course, past english classes have attempted to teach this to me, but it wasn't until this class-- having to translate Old English, discussing the finer parts of Taoism, and dissecting the philosophies of Socrates-- that it's truly clicked.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Recognize that nothing matters. No, I'm serious. She makes this very clear from day one. Nothing matters, the system's flawed, and reality is an illusion akin to the shadows on a wall of a puppet show we aren't aware we were watching. Once you know these principles and take the theory of Plato's cave to heart, a lot of stress is relieved. The class doesn't become less difficult, that's for sure, but in a way it becomes more manageable because your mentality changes.

    I would recommend this course because as a junior, I had the feel as if I was an adult.

    I learned how to be independent and learn to do things in the best possible way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Don't be afraid to ask questions.
