Professor Russi is very passionate about fairy tales. The lectures can be boring, but he tries to lighten the mood. The stories are overall interesting. He is an easy grader for reader responses, but not for papers.

This course was overall engaging. Professor Coe is very passionate about Desert Ecology. She helps her students debunk all sorts of desert myths that have been normalized for generations. There are weekly readings and questions that she covers in class. She also encourages discussion throughout the lectures.

FYSE1203 with Robert Cohen13 days ago

The Beast in the Jungle is a hard, interactive seminar that focuses on challenging books that speak about the mind and the human experience. Constant reading is required as you have to read a book a week. 3 essays are required throughout the course and graded fairly but hardly. Overall the course is worth it, but be ready to read.
