The two subjects cross over far more often that I would’ve thought, which makes for great connections between the two that, at times, make me feel as though it’s deliberate. read more

I really enjoy it. The English classes allow me to explore a wide range of literature and authors whom I wouldn't pick up in my free time. Our study of books is not very deep (one book per week over a course of 11 weeks, 12 at most), but I like that it allows us to explore a lot of things. We are then able to dive into the themes we are the most interested in in our essays. I love my creative writing classes, it allows me to have some feedback on my writings and be critical of the works others do as well. On the whole, it is a very reflective course which encourages book lovers and aspiring writers to explore many subjects and develop a critical approach to texts. read more
