    I will say that you should try to stay on top of your assignments and chapter quizzes. there is not a lot of writing involved apart from the book reaction paper at the end of the semester so you don't have to worry about that too much

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives students a different perspective of people with lives less privileged than ours. It is really an eye opening course and allows students to appreciate the country we live in.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course we watched several documentaries of different societies and learned a lot about how the different cultures function. This course is really an inside look at how different cultures live their day to day lives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students would be to read the required passages. They are some of the most inspiring and interesting passages I have ever read in any course I have taken. Not only are they interesting and enjoyable to read but they also help with exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Beverly Schmit is a great professor who has personal and active experience in the field of anthropology. The course opens your mind to concepts beyond our own culture, and will daily discussion questions, allows us to analyze compare and comprehend how we see both our own culture and others

    Course highlights:

    The class allowed me to critically analyze the world I grew up in, and question everything that was established through life. When you see how other cultures developed and how they established their laws and religion, it really helps you realize who you are is solely based on where your raised. Every thing about you is circumstantial.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend every class. The quizzes are almost always tied to the in class power points. Read the assigned chapters for clarity. Always ask questions, it shows that you are willing to learn and are trying to see beyond your own culture.
