    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class and Dr. Hebbar. While at times the course material wasn't that interesting, Dr. Hebbar is truly passionate about what she's teaching and so this made the course as a whole very informative and very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about classical authors such as Socrates, Plato, and Shakespeare. The great thing about Core is that its a mix of so many different time periods, authors, and ideas. Truly the best part is when you begin to understand how all of these different works share common themes even though they are written centuries apart.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course does involve a lot of reading, however, not an overwhelming amount. There are about 4 papers you are required to write over the course of a semester, but the requirements for each are not strenuous and overall the prompts were very easy to write about.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was amazing! You will have to do the reading of course; but the class discussions, paper topics and in depth analysis that are required really prepare you for the rest of your career at Oglethorpe.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was the final paper. I learned a lot of technical things about my writing that I hadn't paid attention to in high school.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read! Read! Read! Also , go to her office hours. She is so approachable and willing to help if you don't understand something.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Hornback is one of the best professors at Oglethorpe and this course if one of the most immersive. If you at least don't hate Shakespeare you going to love this course. Hornback in the resident Shakespeare expert on campus. He gives the best lectures, he moderates discussions well, and he provides the most constructive criticism on papers (seriously guys, I look forward to getting my papers back for his notes alone).

    Course highlights:

    There was a day when we were talking about all the things that form the self and it was just one of those class discussions that go so in depth you forget you're in class and before you realize it class is over.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your best to keep up with the reading, go to the paper conferences, and participate in class
