  1. Sometimes taking a class from an adjunct faculty member can be fascinating, particularly if that person has studied in a certain area or is approaching the topic of English in an unusual way. People will arrive at a choice based on determining their interest or the graduate requirements they need to fulfill. Summer courses can be good for remediation too, if it is needed.
