The best aspects of this course were the interesting material and the large number of topics covered. The worst aspects of this course included the length of the reading assignments and generally heavy workload. Suggestions for improvement included cutting down the reading assignments and changing the format of the class to spread out the graded assignments over the semester or add more assignments. Prospective students should be aware that this class is not writing intensive but requires a significant amount of reading and writing.
