Hawley, John Silver_nugget
Hinduism

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Yes, Hawley is charming and is light. But are you ready to read around 15 books in the semester, especially Hindu concepts that you barely understand. And by the way Hawley doesn't explain anything in class you are left on your own. The TA's James and Travis are strict graders that want grad school kind of writing. Getting an A or even a decent grade on this course I think is impossibe especially when its a cumulative final and Hawley could choose to put anything down from the entire course.

Good luck, you are going to need it.

Workload:

A decent amount of reading for every class, 75-100 pages. Two papers graded harshly by the TA's and a midterm and a cumulative final.
