    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of the best intro classes I've taken at the U. You will discuss culture as a whole (NOT individual cultures). Those who expected to learn about different cultures were disappointed because the class is about how culture and meaning is formed. You discuss social constructs, meaning making, and symbols. A lot of the time it felt like the information he was giving was going right over people's heads since it was semi-philosophical but Brad was more than willing to explain concepts again (especially right before the tests!).

    Course highlights:

    Brad was an incredible professor. Funny, laid back, and really smart. We watched the documentary about the OJ case, part of They Live, an episode of The Simpsons, listened to a podcast, and watched a couple short films. It's what made the class fun because you weren't always sitting through a lecture. The class really makes you realize how much of our lives are shaped by social constructs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take as many notes as possible about what he is discussing in class. You're allowed to use your notes for the test and he also hands out possible topics that will be covered, making it really easy to ace the tests. Brad will give you synonyms for lots of key words so you can use those on the test (they are written short answers) and so you can better understand concepts. This frustrated a lot of people because they thought all we were doing was coming up with different words for one word but he does it to help.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He was a fun guy to learn from, but the content was incredibly confusing at times. He was a good prof because he was very interested in what he was teaching, and he had good examples to clarify questions.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the class were that he was a solid professor, you can use notes on exams, and I was actual interested in what he had to say because he made his topics interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to read the textbook thoroughly and make sure you understand the concepts he teaches in class. Take detailed notes because you can use them on exam days, and they help a lot! He also provides study guides.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is relatively easy is notes are taken down. The material at first is interesting to learn about but as the student moves on in the semester the student will most likely become confused on the different concepts at hand and the lack of detail behind them.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were its ability to describe and interpret culture in a perspective that a student being introduced to collegiate level classes have probably never experienced and created memorable and relatable topics to discuss. The material is applicable to any student living in American society and creates a psychological aspect to our understanding of others.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take plenty of notes and have a full understanding of the topics discussed in class.
