Studies in 19th-Century French Culture and Literature
This Professor is seriously a joke!! Do not take this guy, he speaks to himself the whole time, no interactions with students, students were sleeping in his class!!! You will have 2 essays to write (4-5 pages), 40% each, attendance and class participation is 20% (does not let students participate much!!). I think that he should retire, he has no love for teaching, just wanting to collect his paycheck. It is really unfortunate that teachers like him are allowed to teach. He might be a good writer himself but definitely not a good teacher!! I got an A- in his class, being a native speaker and having a bachelor in French literature from Paris!! What a shame!!!
Fall 2022 - To be honest, it's a difficult class for undergrad because you are taking the same class with grad students. (For them, it's called FRNCH 219). However, if you enjoy learning French, really want to make progress in this language, and learn French literature, I strongly recommend this class. Professeure Murat is fabulous and her class is inspiring, profound, and meaningful! You will never regret taking her class in your college life.
