    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as an elective because you truly learn the fundamentals of anthropology. You truly learn the study of humans in different cultures, the good and the bad, the how to and what not to do. The readings on these matters can be long but they are interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned to observe the world in a whole new perspective. When I make certain statements to my family or friends they respond with " Wow I never saw it like that ". This course truly opens your eyes on his the world and people all correlate.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read the materials and take notes, that is what mostly will be on the TWO exams. you get no home work.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definately recommend this course to fellow students to experience reality, how cultures, races, and gender affect our lives and opinions of others. This course will help broaden your outlook how closely alike we all are but similarly we are all different at the same time. Alot of historical and recent examples available in the course work to help you analyze how to approach situations differently and get a better sense of history, how it shapes and affects us today. In conclusion awesome topics and information and how we as a race are constanly changing and progressing as a whole.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlights of the course i would say the diversity in class which allowed for many different opinions and in depth discussions about race, culture, gender and multiculturalism( just to name a few). I gained a better understanding of my culture as well as others and how we ultimately create our existense. We have come a long way as a whole human race, and by better understanding each other, many cultures, and different races, we can hopefully knock down the barriers of being different ( while still definatley not forgeting where you came from) and finally see even though we are different, we are the same!!!!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Yes do not be late, must take class seriously. Reading and analyzing material read in this course was very crucial to being able to participate in class and really put that brain to work. Stay focused on the different assignments and how they connect with cultural understanding when pertaining to race, culture, gender, equality and how tools used by anthropologist to study these real life situations to collect data for future research and understandings of other people and cultures around the world.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was one of the best classes I took at John Jay. Before this class I did not know anything about anthropology or what it was. The Professor is very kind, intelligent, engaging, patient, and passionate about her career and anthropology. I have learned a lot of the topic and it was very interesting class.

    Course highlights:

    We had to do an ethnographic research project as our first assignment. It was very interesting to see all the little things that we take advantage of everyday by not noticing them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have fun and do all of the assignments that is asked of (only 3)
