    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend because it was really an easy A. The only bad part was making sure that you read the books. My particular class didn't like to talk, so he did most of it, but we did have weekly papers due over the readings.

    Course highlights:

    You don't have to buy books. I learned that there are many eras in literature. I never paid attention in high school. So to see it now is like oh, my!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reading is essential! It will seem easy up until midterms and the final. His final kicked my butt! Don't get lazy on the readings. Reading them the night before does not help either.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was such a great experience learning from Peter Murphy in my Humanities 211 class last Fall. We looked deep into Shakespeare, the Sermon on the Mount and speeches from great leaders throughout or time. We talked about ethics and went deep into how to live an ethical life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course, along with learning a littler more about Shakespeare was the fact that he was passionate about teaching us about an ethical life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings when assigned and do not fall behind in the class. You will fail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would reccommend this course to fulfill your humanities requirement. Dr. Peter Murphy is a great instructor. An upside to taking this class is the professor gives the exams to his students a week before the actual test is supposed to be taken. The questions are all short answer and there are only 2 questions per exam. Taking home the exams gives you a chance to reflect on the readings and apply them to the questions before the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about ethics in literature in this course. The instructor himself was the biggest highlight of the class. He is an outstanding instructor who genuinely cares for his students and their success. Also, he gives extra credit to anyone who needs it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually read the assigned stories before class that he gives us. Sometimes he gives pop quizzes over them and they count for a percent of your final grade.
