    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you about important and real issues that people face throughout the world. It gives you a different perspective on life and what you make of it, it inspires you to want to make change in the world and to help people who may not be as fortunate as you or others. It is a great introduction to what geography is all about, it shows that geography is not limited to just one country or just one concept, it encompasses all types of issues whether they be environmental, cultural, political, economic, etc and you may realize that it's the major for you.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were the personal experiences that Dr. Luna would speak about during class. Learning about the struggles that people face in developing countries is entirely different from living them and seeing first hand what these people must deal with each day. Dr. Luna's stories gave better insight on the issues in developing countries and I admire that he makes it a priority to travel to these countries in order to give better knowledge to his students. I learned about the issues that people in the United States are oblivious to, the issues that women face in oppressive countries, the difficulties of extreme poverty, the consequences of ethnic conflict and many other topics that I was unaware of prior to taking this class. This class has had a strong influence on my decision to become a Geography major and want to address issues in developing countries in my future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in this class, you have to attend lecture. Dr. Luna provides valuable information orally that may not always be on the PowerPoint presentations. There are papers that have to be written, but none are too long or difficult, you have to remember not to procrastinate and to time manage. There are also times when you must work in groups which may not always be the easiest thing but you just have to make sure that you communicate well with your peers. This is not a difficult course and it is so enlightening, it is a great choice when considering courses to take for general education. The professor is also a great instructor and knows how to engage the class so that students are always interested.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is an eye opener in my eyes. In this class, Dr. Luna gives everyone a chance to see the difference between a developing country and a developed country. He focuses on health issues, migration and gender issues.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was that I was able to

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are group projects in this course. Be sure to take the first step and try not to wait until the last minute to work on the project. Even though Dr. Luna provides powerpoints, it is still important to go to class because he tells you things that will be on the exam that will not be on the powerpoint.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The essays and tests are simple enough, but if you aren't into group work this class isn't for you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that where you are born and what gender you are born with alters your future drastically.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and learn memorization techniques because half the exams are written.
