    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is incredibly hard, but gives a new understanding of the world.

    Course highlights:

    It gave me a much better sense of how to really dive into texts. I felt like I was truly being enlightened by the depth of the ideas I was learning about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read absolutely everything, and write everything down. That's basically it. Try to understand which themes are the focus of each text as quickly as you can, so that you can continue reading the text with those themes in mind. Also, annotate the text. If nothing else, underline big, important sounding quotes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was absolutely worth the time commitment. Beyond studying core texts of Western culture, it offers a thorough introduction to the literary questions posed by the limits of humanity.

    Course highlights:

    For me the highlights of the course included our lectures on the Iliad, Aeneid, Inferno, and the Apology of Socrates.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important part of this course is time management. Unless you write your best papers the night before, it's a lot less stressful to just break up the readings and essays over the week.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are a student that strives to challenge yourself and enjoys complex material, HONR 101 is definitely for you. It is a very fast-paced course that covers and extreme amount of material without much detail. The paper assignments are difficult, but they really inspire you to think and formulate a strong argument.

    Course highlights:

    I loved reading all the classical pieces in this course. These were pieces of literature that I probably would not have picked up and read otherwise.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read all of the material, no matter how hard it is to get through. Ask as many questions as you need to, and go to office hours, even if your professor intimidates you. They want to answer your questions and have intelligent conversations.
