    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Barrett is hands down the most amazing Professor in the entire English Department. She is highly intelligent, super helpful, caring, and hilarious. She made the most dense reading material extremely enjoyable and, although her class is challenging and she has high expectations, she's always available outside of class. She's responsive to emails, questions in class, and during her office hours. She's the type of professor that students just want to sit down and chat with because she has that amazing of a personality.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about British literature, Shakespeare, and Chaucer. I also learned about literature specific research skills, and I honed my writing skills. While the class isn't necessarily extremely difficult, Dr. Barrett has very high expectations for writing, class discussion, and reading. She assigns a decent amount of reading per week, and while the amount of writing isn't bad for an English major, she grades rigorously. If you're an A student who expects to make an A in this class you will definitely have to go to office hours, not miss class, and devote a good chunk of time to reading and writing your papers. However, if you do that and actively seek out Dr. Barrett outside of class then your grade will reflect your work ethic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise you to never miss class. She gives out reading quizzes and her classes are a blast. You'll understand and enjoy the reading material so much more by attending class. Also, there is a project-- get creative and don't procrastinate, she will appreciate it.
