Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
The specific Anthropology class I took was part of the Residential Academic Program at UMass Amherst. I really enjoyed it as it was a small class filled with my wonderful hallmates. The class material itself was full of information I really enjoyed learning. We talked about the dynamics of cuisine, medicine, economies, and treatment of certain people from all around the world. I rented the textbook but I would have loved to keep it, it was that interesting!
As stated before, we learned about different countries' traditions. We were able to make the comparison between developed countries and underdeveloped countries. We learned about the different types of political systems and economies around the world. Our teacher put us in the shoes of an anthropologist and had us debate our opinions about which system we thought was most beneficial. I loved the involvement, structure, and content of the class.

Advice for students:
In the class, it is not always necessary to read the textbook but I would highly recommend it if you want to completely grasp the topics. They are interesting and it is very satisfying to have an in-depth understanding of the topic. For test, study guides and flashcards are crucial.
