    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It has been an interesting course that has taught me a lot about World Literature that I never would have read otherwise.

    Course highlights:

    Reading Sarah's Key and Native Son. They are both eye opening books that teach the horrible effects of racism or genocide.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and read the books! The quizes are detailed so summaries online will not do.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't necessarily recommend this course personally, as I am not that into ancient literature. However, I was grateful for the experience because I was forced to read some ancient classics that I definitely wouldn't have read if I had the choice.

    Course highlights:

    Mainly, We read classic ancient literature. Books such as The Iliad, Agamemnon, Oedipus Rex, The Inferno and Don Quixote were all common knowledge by the end of the year. There was a lot of reading, but not so much that we didn't stop to appreciate what we did get to read.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of reading in this course. Unfortunately, it's hard to skip out on the reading, as a reflection on the reading is due every day. So, I would do the reading and write the reflections ASAP rather than holding off.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is wonderful opportunity to expand your knowledge of literature through the ages. I believe it is important to have a wide knowledge base of literature in order to better understand culture and society. This course helps teach those things by integrating history, contextual society and the author's background into understanding the literature you are reading.

    Course highlights:

    This class required the reading of several different books, plays and poems. It also had group projects and class activities. I learned how learning about the background of the author can make understanding their works so much easier. I also learned so much about the meaning of poetry and how to better interpret it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you actually read the materials. The class is based on the reading so it is important to actually read it. Also, pay attention in class to the lecture. The professor provides his powerpoints in advance and I found it helpful to print them off before class and take additional notes next to the slides. You will be tested over both class lectures on cultural and author background and on reading comprehension.
