    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Interpretation of Literature is a requirement for almost everyone, however taking it with Jovan made the requirement much easier. He focused on 20th century mid-west authors, and had a really great mix between different genders, viewpoints, social ideas and religions. The class focused on in class discussions and a few papers.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was that for ever assignment, we had an example of what he was looking for. Every week before we had a paper due, there were in class work days where drafts of our papers were reviewed by Jovan. This was great because you got excellent feedback on your papers before you turned it in for a grade, making it very possible to be extremely successful.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are reading quizzes once a week in class, which are give away points as long as you do the reading. Class discussions are a grade, and as long as you are engaged in class, you will do well in the course.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course. I was fortunate enough to have a phenomenal professor that cared deeply for the subject, really bringing literature alive. English major or not, this class is highly useful for future essay-writing, and readings.

    Course highlights:

    Interpreting literature (as simple as it sounds). I learned how to quickly and efficiently write a polished, solid essay for a numerous amount of subjects. I also learned how to "properly" interpret literature. There are no wrong answers, and MANY different, unique interpretations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you pay attention and work hard, it will pay off. To non-English majors it might be a bore, but just pay attention and I promise you'll learn something. Work hard!!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class includes a wide variety of reading, and only eight total one-page, single spaced papers that are done over the course of a year. Class is mostly spent on discussion of the texts, including possible thesis ideas that can be used in student essays.

    Course highlights:

    This class was mostly about highlighting what the students know about the world and how they can take that plus a complex understanding of particular pieces of literature and create a well-developed one-page essay. In the beginning there is guidance on how to start thinking complexly about literature, but it varies per class depending on where the students are already.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait until the last minute to write each paper. Start with a draft, even if it's terrible, and then edit or rewrite it later. Especially if you are taking a lot of other challenging courses, make sure to have a preliminary draft prepared before you start writing the final draft. And make sure your title is obnoxiously long and contains both a colon (:) and the piece of literature with its author.
