    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it change my perspective on gender and sexuality. It made me realize that there are more genders than just male and female. Gender is socially constructed and I became aware of the ways we are all raised as a whole to fit the roles of our assumed gender. This class is discussion based and the class is open to all opinions. There were also a mass amount of people that felt comfortable enough to come out about their sexualities because this class was a judge free zone. This class was amazing and mind blowing. I would recommend it to everyone.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was that it was located at a Women's prison. I was able to make connections with women that were confined and even though they committed crimes, they are still human. We learned about gender, intersectionality, sexuality, and how incarcerated women are treated in comparison to how men are treated in prison.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is discussion based, so I highly recommend completing the readings. There are people who do not like to read but these readings are very relatable and interesting, so the readings become easy to do. There are also reflection journals that are due every week. These journals are opinion based and describes what you learned in that class session, your worries, any connections made, and questions never asked. Make sure the readings are done and the journal entries are done on time and you will be guaranteed an A!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class originally as a way to fill a requirement, but after the first week of discussion, I looked at it much differently. The topics discussed in class are more than just gender and sexuality. With Professor Currans you will discuss overlapping topics from inequality to education and how they affect one another. The only negative I see is that the class will be discussing some very heave topics such as discrimination and abuse in several forms.

    Course highlights:

    While taking the course, I learned that several issues such as abuse, gender violence and discrimination was not only an issue in certain communities. I usually only thought that discrimination was prominent with those who were dark color skin rather than it being against those who are homosexual as well as how homosexuality was viewed in the U.S over the years.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you need to be very open minded to others opinions and the course themes. the discussions at times can be controversial and sensitive to other. The reading and assignments that are given to each student are important and interesting to read as there is no major paper or test, you are graded on the thoroughness of your answers to the assignments and don't put off readings till the last day.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened up my eyes to the differences in the world. I learned a lot of things I didn't know before, and this class always kept me interested. It was my favorite class I took all semester.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were just the way my professor taught us and engaged with us. I learned a lot about the way people in the LGBT community are degraded, and that was very eye opening for me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is very heavy on the readings, and it is important to do them so you get the best out of the course. Just be prepared for a lot of reading.
