    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Thinking critically is a skill that comes with this class, if you don't have the skill you will gain it by the end of the course.

    Course highlights:

    This course is your run of the mill World Literature course, there is a selection of reading from all over the world. Reading some classics and some not so easy to read pieces expands one's repertoire.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading! Take notes as you do the reading, by hand. Put away the distractions.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It really depends on the type of person you are on whether or not I would recommend this course to you. For this professor specifically, you have to be ready to argue your point or argue that an answer was correct on the test. She actually appreciates when people do that and you will need to sometimes. However you do have to be prepared for every class and have done the reading. She will sometimes call on people randomly to answer questions and she can tell when you haven't. There are also quizzes practically every day that you have to be prepared for. They are typically not too difficult if you have done the reading, but they are usually not that long so if you miss one question it could just drop your grade down to an 80. Again with the professor, you have to have tough skin with some of the things she says. She will definitely challenge you on your opinions and she does not hold back. But aside from that if you do the reading and study, it not too difficult of a class as long as you are putting in effort and don't let the little tedious things bother you. It does challenge you to actually focus on reading and deeply think about the impact it had on the culture at the time or our culture today.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing I enjoy about this class is the actual material being learned. For the most part the readings are not too difficult, but they are some classic pieces of literature that is extremely good to have read. Also, in this class you get a good overview of "ancient" literature so you are not just focused on one piece for half the semester. Furthermore I love being able to read different literature from different cultures and time periods. It really allows you to pear into what the culture was like in that time. The literature is a reflections of the beliefs, culture, and issues of the time and allows you to be apart of it. Also, as long as you can handle the quirks of the professor, she is very knowledgeable and has really good insight on the literature.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the reading. The concepts are not too difficult to grasp and the studying is not extremely difficult as long as you do the readings for every class. As long as you are reading and paying attention when you read, you will do fine in the class.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the information and material the students would learn is helpful despite their various majors, backgrounds, and studies. The class studies different cultures, languages, ancient societies, and how they interact and influence each other, and it is important to know how cultures and practices of the past influenced and yielded to societies of the present.

    Course highlights:

    World Literature taught me the difference between cuneiform and hieroglyphs. It taught me the origin of literature, and that civilizations where ever the place and whenever the time needs agriculture and permanent settlements to thrive. Through World Lit I learned about the glory culture of the Greeks and how they first used written language to keep track of commercial transactions and business deals. I learned about how Rome thrived by accepting the ideas of the people it conquered and openly inviting immigrants and their cultures to their empire. The class taught me what frame tales are, and through stories like One Thousand and One Nights I learned how tales and parables can be used to educate and influence others in an entertaining yet understandable way. And by watching the Professor teach the class I was able to observe and learn how he related with the class and made material that others may have deemed as boring, interesting. It is a result of this class in fact that I am considering adding Philosophy as my minor and am more interested in Theology and social interactions between people.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although the content may be vigorous, whether or not you succeed in the class is up to you, your work ethic, and how willing you are to understand and comprehend material. I can't say that every Professor is as intriguing as Bradley Edwards, but I can say that the material the course offers has the potential to benefit your understanding of the modern and ancient world.
