    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened my mind and made me rethink about how I view my culture and other cultures around the world. What may be strange to me is normal to them. We read and watched videos about child labor in China, gender roles in the US, and about a lady named Nisa in Africa. Some of the material was disagreeable while others were interesting and made me re-think about certain cultrues. For example, learning about a women named Nisa and how she grew up in Afrcia, helped me to appreciate her culture and respect the struggles she went through.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that different cultures need to be respected and not changed. It's better to learn about why they do the things they do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do all of the readings because they are important in the tests and class discussions.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend taking cultural anthropology with Professor Leela Tanikella because it deepened and enriched my understanding of culture, difference, and power. The knowledge I gained in the class has stuck with me and helped me see the world from more than one perspective.

    Course highlights:

    We read many anthropological texts and had group discussions on what the Anthropologist attempted to prove, what they did well, and where they went wrong. These discussions engaged all class members and allowed us all to hear different points of views.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of reading so make sure to set enough time aside to read the stories thoroughly. Taking notes on readings is also important because that way, when you arrive to class you will know exactly what you can contribute to the class discussions. Staying organized is also crucial for this class as it is with all classes. Having well organized notes will not only help you to get the most out of the course but will also make studying for the mid-term and final easier.
