    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course changed everything I am and how I think about race. My professor for the class, who was also a student, connected with us and tried to make sure she got to know us by name. We dub deep into the problems of racism. But first, we discovered the biological and non-biological form of race and how it was created. Are people born with race or racism in their blood? Then, we discovered in a plethora of ways race is portrayed (i.e. Wealth, Health, Education, and the Criminal Justice System.) Sometimes is was tough being in class and learning how harsh and dangerous racism can get and how evil people can be. But, if it wasn't for the hard parts, I wouldn't have learned. It's getting through the hard parts that make you realize how much this country needs to change. But, my professor encouraged us to make small little changes in the world near us. Being kind to someone. Voting. Going out and protesting makes our voice heard. This class was about change and that is exactly what it will do to you. Change you on the inside first, then it's up to you to make the change reciprocate into the world.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how race was developed and what made people place a "race" on you. I learned how white privilege and white supremacy took over and many minority groups are still trying to climb that mountain, but it's because of how the system was created that no matter who are, you cannot change that you are a minority and there will always be people above and below you. I learned about the different movements that are going on right now to do something about racism and stereotyping people. But the most important thing you will learn at the end of class: how to be an ally. How to listen and how to change the way people think.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open minded. Don't come to class angry or closed off. Be willing to learn things, even things you do not agree with. Don't be afraid to speak up. It is okay to have a different mindset of way of thinking as someone else. Everyone there is open to change and that includes what you have to say. Don't be afraid of disagreeing with the professor. The professor is there to learn from you and vice versa. Be open to change. This class will change the way you think about a lot of things. Don't be afraid to change.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it will make you realized so many things around you that you never noticed or took into account before. This course will give you a different view on race.

    Course highlights:

    "Race" is not exsistant it is made up. A highlight would be learning that you're closer to the individual sitting next to you then you ever imagined they would regardless of their skin color; than a friend you thought was your twin.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Sit at the front and be prepared to write/type, they're mountain of notes to be taken down and they will go fast. Take in everything the instructor is saying because some things may be difficult to understand at first glance. Make lots of bulet points to better understand your notes and all the categories being taught. Be interactive and ask questions, you'll have a lot! Don't forget to be apart of discussions and show interest; Most importantly enjoy learning how your mind set changes!
