Professor Maria is extremely passionate about the materials she teaches and cares deeply about students. That being said, this FYSE was very unorganized and lacked structure. Prof. Maria doesn't communicate ideas or deadlines with much clarity, and we didn't even have a Canvas page, with Prof. Maria instead emailing us what was due week to week. Extremely easy, but not academically stimulating in the classroom. Readings were very manageable and the content of the readings was always interesting.

The Journey Within is class that causes you to ponder the spiritual and yourself on a deeper level. Professor Maria cares deeply about the material and is very passionate about what she shares. There are no concrete deadlines for readings/essays, and the class ebbs and flows at its own unique pace. Oftentimes, as others have mentioned, due to this lack of structure, there is a lot of off-topic conversations and lectures that occur. However, if you are looking for a solid introduction to religion and philosophy in a low workload environment, this FYS is a good option to take.

This is a great choice for a first-year seminar. Professor Maria is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the material, and there is little work each week, only a couple of outside-of-class readings. The class, however, is very unstructured which often leads to off-topic conversations and long rants, which are still interesting nonetheless.
