    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As a psychology major, studying cultural anthropology is crucial to making sense of religious, socioeconomic and socio-political, cultural and personal bias', language and how it applies to individuals and their childhood and adult cultures. By understanding others, we better understand ourselves, human nature, and how to interact with others in spite of our personal beliefs or preconceived ideals. This course has been instrumental in assisting me in finding commonalities with others as opposed to differences. I have always considered myself an anthropologist at heart, and this course has taught me that as much as I thought I knew-- I have barely scratched the surface. If your intended career is to work with others, anthropology will help you develop interpersonal skills, and is imperative to those who will be working in a diverse and globalized field.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned a great deal about cultural norms, religious and spiritual belief systems, and how everyone really wants the same thing-- to be connected. I have also learned about modernization and globalization on an anthropological level and how these things, which are not necessarily exclusive, are helpful in some societies yet a hindrance in others. Most importantly, I have discovered how to put personal opinions aside and see individuals as products of enculturation and societal indoctrination​.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Anthropology is tough, it's not for the lackadaisical studier. Depending on your professor, you will likely find yourself immersed in your textbook, vocabulary and research. However, if you enjoy people, how they 'tick', why they do the things they do, and the varying types of anthropological studies, this is a great course. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning the terminology that I can carry into my related field as well as teaching it to friends and family. I am a firm believer that if you put your all into this class, and really have a knack for understanding others this course will take that understanding to the next level and help you be a better human being.
