Why you are going to love my class
Because I will take your energy and direct you into academic pursuits you hadn't thought of — to explore other possibilities, especially when it comes to what you want for your future and for your career.
Great things for you at UDM
Through topics studied in my classes, I will show you the value of becoming a life-long intellectual, no matter what career you choose. I will teach you to become a responsible, critical thinker with the ability to look at topics from multiple perspectives.
Great things in store after UDM

Because so many texts include topics related to moral issues, a careful attention to these issues will make you think about your values and how people can be more just to each other.

Also you will bring that ethical dimension to your critical thinking, which will impact all dimensions of your life.  And you will take this with you when you leave UDM.

My favorite part about teaching you
Seeing you get excited when you get the material and really understand it. It's re-energizing to me.
I may change your mind
About why you should study Medieval and Renaissance literature. By talking about the differences between these early periods and modern society, you will re-see and re-learn your current culture.
