    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it for the sole focus of the course. Students explore the origins of writing and philosophy. Professor Myerston encourages students to create a society using references from Greek philosophy, perspectivism in different cultures, and other sources. Rather than writing essays, your creativity is really put to use in this course. Experimenting with different writing styles, fabricating your own mythologies, deciding whether or not the society flourishes– this course will be a journey.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were delving deeper into the backgrounds of the most influential Greek philosophers. You touch base with their ideologies in high school, but you really look into their actual philosophies in this course. You analyze the methods used to create their ideas, you read into actual passages written by the philosophers, and you discover the lasting impact of ideas presented hundreds of years ago.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Brainstorm early. Create relationships with your TA. Be original.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I think this is one of the better CAT courses; however, there is a lot of reading and writing involved. It is also a bit difficult to stay interested if you don't agree with the professor's opinions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how controversial the issue of borders really is.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of your reading in advance so that you have time to write your reading responses, midterm, etc.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a intensive writing course that emphasizes in border relations and immigration. This extends to the United States/Mexico border, borders in Asia, Vietnam, and personal narritives of immigrants and their struggle in the United States.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the course highlights, for me, were when we discussed the US/Mexico border. This was a highlight for me because I, myself, am Mexican, so it gave me another perspective of this tale that i grew up around.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never wait until the last day to start the readings or reading responses. Give yourself time to edit and really comprehend what you are reading. It is also really useful to have a friend that will look over your work and give you constructive criticism.
