    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The discussion felt very organic and stemmed from the students' and the professor's genuine interest in the material. The students in my class were always ready to share and push the conversation forward, making for a delightful class experience.

    Course highlights:

    The material stretched from the 1900's to the Sixties, the dystopian and innovative nature of the material immediately drew me in. We were asked to group three pieces from distinct eras and that proved very interesting for me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to obviously keep up with the reading, form a study group to make sure you understand the stories, and to visit with Professor McComber. McComber is very approachable and writer of gothic novels himself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very well structured, straight forward, and engaging. Expectations are clear and the discussions are fun.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about new perspectives on American classics that I had never considered before. One thing that stands out to me is the discussion we had on The Great Gatspy and reading it through the lens of racial biases.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Engage in the class discussions. The professor loves when you ask questions and there truly is no "dumb" question to be asked.
