    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Murphy teaches the most amazing classes! She specializes in postcolonial literature, so it is a real treat to take this course. We read Salman Rushdie, Joseph Conrad, Chinua Achebe, and more. Her class is discussion based, so participation counts. The discussions were thought-provoking. The rigor of her class makes you a better student. Overall, she is a fun teacher whose class will enhance your college career.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Murphy had weekly assignments called QHQs. These assignments allowed for a close analysis of the books. The books were interesting to read. Dr. Murphy made you think. Her course was challenging, but also incredibly fun. She taught us about magical realism, etiquette when reading postcolonial literature, how to analyze a reading, etc. If there is one class that you need to take before you graduate, it is her class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in Dr. Murphy's course, you have to read the books! Without doing the reading and subsequent assignments, you cannot pass. Do not take this class if you don't like writing or if you tend to procrastinate. You will not succeed. This class also has a lot of discussions. Participation counts so you must talk. There are a few outside meetings that are required. Overall, if you are not willing to do the work, then do not take this class. If you are ready​ to work hard, then this class will be a fun and valuable addition to your college career.
