    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    No matter how much you read or study, Professor Long is hard to follow and does not communicate well. Though he is a very intelligent and knowledgeable man, he is incredibly unorganized and does not respond to emails or come to office hours. While the other teacher for this course assigned no books, professor long requires you to buy 7 books for the course and this is not the entirety of the assigned reading nor the majority of it. Though this is a wonderful course full on scintillating readings and discussion opportunities, Professor Long does not create an environment that is conducive for these opportunities.

    Course highlights:

    The readings were fantastic! If you could possibly get through all of them (Their were thousands of pages of reading no exaggeration at all) you learned a lot of great examples and theories in terms of feminism, abortion, race and various issues aligned with these subjects.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I took 18 credit hours this past semester, even if I had taken less the reading would have been too much for me to complete. I received the highest score in my class ( an 85) and i did not finish the reading and went to a myriad of extra credit lectures. This class is more work than it's worth. In order to take this class take the other professor. Several of my friends were in this class and benefited from the constructive teaching style and mangle amount of reading. Excellent course, fascinating material just not with this professor.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wiltshire challenged us and our way of thinking. The readings were all interesting, and he provided all of them so we didn't have to purchase a textbook.

    Course highlights:

    This course really makes you contemplate our cultural perceptions of race and gender, and how they are not inherit, natural perceptions. It makes you reconsider your views on what defines someones race or gender, and overall opens your mind.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings, but if you don't, go to class for sure. Each class is mainly him going more in depth on the readings. So if you didn't read, you can still get what the paper was about from his lecture, which is super helpful for the assignments.
