    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Ann Rall is a very understanding and intelligent professor. The class covered many social justice and topics on ethnicity and diversity. The assignments were and readings were always very interesting and informative. Ann really makes everyone feel welcome and a part of the class. I learned a lot about different kinds of people and it helped me to prepare for the future social work classes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different oppressed groups and how social justice is a daily part of our lives. One specific unit that I really liked was when we talked about women and social justice. We read some great information about women and the workplace and were able to discuss how stigmas are being changed today. The class was very empowering because it let us look at different ways we can become more of an active citzen in our community.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, it is important to stay organized and do the readings. We had small reading quizzes and making sure to read everything is a big helpful tip. I also think a good study tip would be to annotate on the readings and to ask questions in class. Ann does a great job with answering questions and loves discussion during class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was like being a part of an open discussion, instead of just a lecture class. We were told our classroom was a safe space and it became exactly that. Our professor was well educated, but also laid back and understanding.

    Course highlights:

    This class talked about all different types of diversity and the issues that each group deals with on a regular basis. We talked about native Americans, people with disabilities, people with low economic status, immigrants, women, people who are a part of LGBTQ+, etc. Not only did we have new information shared with us, we were also given a safe space to share our stories and experiences with our fellow students. Many times there were arguments, more than there was an actual sharing and understanding of someones experiences. However, it allowed people to have their thinking challenged and a chance to learn something new from someone other than the professor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to be uncomfortable, but learn that in order to become comfortable you have to get uncomfortable. Learning something new is not always easy and it takes a lot of patience and good listening skills to get through the class while still feeling sane.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think this course, other than it being a requirement offered a unique way of figuring yourself out, how the world operates in a way you may not be exposed to everyday, and realizing the differences that make you who you are and the everyday life events and encounters happen.

    Course highlights:

    The best part was just being able to talk openly in an accepting atmosphere, while still learning social work basics, such as what is racism, that aren't talked about on a regular basis. It was not just a required class, but one that required the most open mind, one that would accept the topics, your classmates, and yourself, the union of personal and educational standpoints being a strong basis for learning. We didn't have tests, but rather essays and participation constituted most of the points. I spent more time thinking abstractly after class about my passions in my major, stimulated by discussions, then hovering over a textbook. We were not only able to speak to one another intimately about things we would probably never find out about each other, but professionals in the social work professions.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to be as prepared as possible to be uncomfortable. Topics are going to hurt to talk about. You may find yourself satisfied with what is covered or afraid for what is being talked about, sensitive, or vulnerable. That is okay. A class like this in social work will prepare you to see more privately into others lives, in order to figure out and use your skills to best intervene and help them improve their quality of life. So you will come across these feelings. I implore you to embrace them, let the fuel your steps forward to becoming who you want to be, never stop thinking and believing in your potential to understand how diversity plays a role in your life. Have fun with it, enjoy the learning and don't stress over papers too much. Write from your heart and show that the information is coming across to you in an enriching way.
