    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was challenging I won't say it wasn't, I'm normally a straight student and I struggled at a time even though I ended up with an A-. The readings were all enjoyable and the Instructor talked with everyone in Discussion posts and really challenged us all. He was flexible as far as if you had an emergency he could be understanding too.

    Course highlights:

    I discovered some pieces of Literatures, namely poetry that I really grew to love. I had always loved poetry but I think this helped expand my palette on that front. I think everybody came out of the class having really liked at least one thing we read. I saw all the time the book actually covered and I was worried about how much reading there would be, 202 has much less reading especially when compared to 201 and most of the reading is prose and poetry with only a few speeches thrown in, unlike 201.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you made it through ENG 201 you can easily make it through ENG 202 reading wise. It is a much lighter loader and gives you more time to focus on the writing assignment and how you would tackle them. I decided to read extra pieces from the book while trying to find something to write about for the final paper and I still felt like I did less, more focused, and more enjoyable reading than the previous course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives a lot of great information about literary styles that originated in the 19th century, and how they have influenced literature today. Being able to learn and understand how these early literary movements affected todays literature adds a good foundation to understanding english.

    Course highlights:

    I wrota a final paper about the Beatniks and their influence on the literary community as well as the GLBTQ community gaining a voice during that era. Having the chance to read and understand Ginsberg, Williams and Kerouac and Burroughs added a whole new depth to my english knowledge and appreciation.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read a lot of literature! Taking the time to read and understand the material will greatly enhance what you take away from this course. Dr. Lorna Wheeler was the best! Her vast knowledge of this subject was amazing, and very helpful in gaining a working knowledge of that era.
