    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course should be required for all majors! Incredibly helpful for a world that seems so divided over issues. Even as someone who considers herself a well-informed intersectional feminist, I learned so much.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Roth is incredibly well informed on issues of race, class, gender, and more. Rather than just standing up and lecturing, she asks that student lead the learning process. The course material focused not only on individual issues but how they overlap.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings! Professor Roth tries to allow every student to participate each class period, and you'll want to contribute in order to earn a good grade. Also be sure to take notes during class! Majority of test questions are based on class discussions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prior to this course, I had never taken a Woman's Studies. That's not to say I wasn't interested in the subject manner, I was, but I never had time for it in my schedule, until that is, my sophomore year. Race, Class, and Gender, inspired me to look outside my own paradigm of how I viewed the world. It opened my eyes, and caused me to question both my previous perspectives and ethical values. It is a course, I believe, everyone should take.

    Course highlights:

    By reading various works of literature including renowned author, Toni Morrison, Race, Class, Gender, evoked typically tabooed conversation topics. Students discussed what white privilege meant, and the severity that it had on society as a whole. Additionally, gender was discussed, and the problems that can arise with the assumption of two binary categories for gender. The course took current news and interwove the modern stories into the lecture, making it both applicable and relatable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to do all of the readings, because that's how you'll continue to learn, and participate in the class conversations. The class conversations are heavily graded as is participation as a whole, so actually do the readings (not the Spark Notes version, Professor Roth can tell the difference!)
