[FREN W3600] France Past and Present: an Introduction to French Civilization

Overall, a great class! Prof Saada is hilarious and makes class enjoyable while maintaining a good level of intellectual rigor. She’s not afraid to poke fun at herself and you can tell she’s really passionate about what she’s teaching. Intro to French Civ AKA France: Past and Present was a good class and I learned a ton. Saada is great at engaging the class and also takes time to lecture in order to clarify difficult material. This was a very well structured course and my knowledge of French civ wasn’t the only thing that got better (my writing did too). She grades the papers with a lot of care and even lets you rewrite a paper for a higher grade (so you learn from your mistakes). Overall, a great class with an even greater professor, I recommend taking this class or anything Saada teaches.

Workload:

Short- to mid-length readings (definitely doable). 2 papers, a midterm, and a final (all reasonably written and graded)
