    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is professor Justice the most interesting person I have come into contact with, she also knows her subject well and knows the kind of literature that is going to keep the class interested. I was skeptical when I recieved my copy of "Baby, Let's Make a Baby," but I ended up lending them out to friends, because it was a truly enjoyable read. Every time I sign up for classes, I try my hardest to get a class with her.

    Course highlights:

    She teaches you to think above and beyond what you usually would. Since taking this course, I would easily say that my analytical skills have greatly improved. The literature read for the class is interesting and as long as you have an opinion, she manages to whisk it out of you, thus encouraging you to embrace your own thoughts. It's a great way to start out an English related major, because it prepares students for the intensive reading and writing courses that follow.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the stories, write down questions and opinions, and talk in discussion. If you do those things, you will get an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For the student who is interested in globalization and/or global texts, this class is definitely for you. The instructor covers similar topics from a wide range of perspective and focuses heavily on subjects such as globalization, feminism, and binaries. For an English major, however, I recommend a different section. I personally do not mind this class, but at the same time, as an English major myself, I know I should be challenged to think more.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course is definitely the student discussion. Especially with the topics leaning more towards the liberal side, it is interesting to hear everyone's opinion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready for a lot of work nearing the end of the term. The course starts out simply and generally the expectations of the work do not change, but it does get heavier during the second half of the class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is an interesting English introduction class. The work is not too over-bearing and the class delves into the idea of analysis which is a convention of studying English that one will always encounter whether they enjoy it or not. Professor Rejack is also an interesting and reasonable instructor that made the class as enjoyable as it could be.

    Course highlights:

    Poetry was study more intensively, especially William Blake's. Also the main focus of the learning objectives is to have a better grasp on the analysis of all types of writing.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    For those in the English Major it is a required course so choice is not very considered for those looking to be in that field. As for anyone else, if you have any strong interest in poetry and analysis of literary works then this is the class for you.
