    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a Diversity credit, which in the case of Literature means that instead of reading Shakespeare, or texts by rich, white, dead men, you get to read texts by and about people of all backgrounds and colors, about feminism, sexism, sexual politics and more. The readings are fascinating with essays focusing on diversity. If I could take this class again I would.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights of this course were of all the texts we read by women, diving into the complicated subject of feminism, black feminism, oppression, and sexual politics. I loved going through the words of these women and examining them for further commentary on social norms and politics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, be prepared to talk and discuss questions, but also to do a lot of reading. It's great, but it is a lot of work.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Intro to lit is not the most exciting class to be in, yet it can also be beneficial. It can give the student a different perspective on how to write papers and how to keep an open mind.

    Course highlights:

    Be open to learning new things. We discussed Shakespeare and recent books written by people close to our age. Getting to know different perspectives of people from totally different generations was pretty interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of readings. Its kind of difficult to have an opinion about something you didn't read.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    When I took this course, the professor spent a lot of time on poetry. After that though, the course got a lot better and was much more enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    This course introduced me to much more poetry than I had ever studied before. I learned more detail about Shakespear, several other plays and short stories, and more poetry terminology then you can shake a stick at.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Doing the reading is vital. Write a lot for the assignments, flesh out every point you make.
