    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a true eye opener. It may not be as important as an English course but it has genuine and incredible information that you would want to know about. The course helps you diverse yourself into many cultures around the world and the simple act of how we all came to be as human beings.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the evolution of how we supposedly came to be (physical changes), cultures around the world involving different tribes, the reality of why we behave the way we do, information about many different types of families and kin, etc, and also why true native American Indians struggle the way they do also about religion and views, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to this class with an open mind, there will be some things that you will not agree on but simply keep an open mind to the new things that you will learn and just binge on the information, it is truly amazing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is the material very interesting and applicable to many areas of our diverse life today, the eight week course requires a lot from the student to get the work done both well and on time.

    Course highlights:

    The course was a little demanding with having to read a couple chapters and doing two assignments every week, but that is to be expected from an eight week class. And the demanding nature of the class is absolutely helpful when it comes to learning time management! Every assignment was due on Fri and closed right after so you had to get your work done; there was no "falling behind" just missing assignments and not missing assignments. The course's content was really interesting especially if you have a particular interest for culture, diversity, society, why we are the way we are, and how we compare with others. That is the basics of the class! And a really great aspect of it is that the Introductory Cultural Anthropology textbook had a ton of real-life examples and videos to help with understanding! And the assignments further the real-life application and understanding by requiring students to do a little bit of research or reading on topics related to the reading but of more modern and/or varied cultures and events. There was a lot of really great content, lessons, and applicable-to-real-life information in this course regardless of whether you are interested in Anthropology or not!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course textbook is online but you can request a paper copy. I would suggest that you do this because there is a lot of information that is required for you to learn to be tested on and I found that it was much faster and easier for me to remember when I used the book and highlighted the information that was most important (based off of powerpoints made by my professor of the most important concepts of the chapter) than when I took notes by hand. There are also a lot of examples that may be intriguing to you to look into or review when you review for an exam so being able to highlight it and make a note it very useful! Another tip I would give is review the assignments at the very beginning of the week. Before you even read the chapters you can look over the assignments to know what is expected of you. This will make them a lot less stressful and make it easier for you to transition from reading to assignment without waiting until the last minute. Don't miss assignments! The points add up and exams can be a little difficult, resulting in more points missed than you want!
