    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very insightful, not only did it open my eyes to the severity of the wealth gap between the rich and the poor in America but also in the entire world. In addition, this class thoroughly explains social, political and economic constructions that lock certain groups to a certain class. I recommend this class because it is eye opening and provides a refreshing burst of knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the poverty trap or in other words key factors found in our society that keep the poor locked in poverty and how difficult it is for one to escape this trap in comparison to the opportunities offered to other people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advise is to do the readings thoroughly, this will ensure good quiz grades. Secondly, in order not to view the readings as a dreadful chore only sign up for the class if you are truly interested in this topic.
