    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class really helps you learn how to accept different cultures and to be able to view your own culture through a more critical light. This allows you to understand the faults within your own society, which helps you tolerate the faults in other societies.

    Course highlights:

    For me the highlight of the course was being exposed to material about cultures I would otherwise never hear about. It was really mind blowing to learn about how different certain customs are, but then to learn that the reasons for those customs are not unlike the reasons for our own society's customs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read a lot of articles that may make you question most values that you believe in. This course is in a way very heavy because it deals with the beliefs that societies consider absolute, unquestionable truths. This can be difficult to learn about because it is hard to look at your own society so critically because it can make you question the very fabric of your life. I recommend that you go into this course with an open-mind and that you recognize that to really understand what is going on, you NEED to read the assigned reading
