    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend that everyone should take this course because it provides a perspective of the world most people are not used to. It is important to become educated about different genders and the ways society can be fixed.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning about marriage and how there are some hidden meanings surrounding traditions most American families are used to.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise incoming students to stay on top of the reading and to be engaged in class. This is a class you will personally benefit from and it will only help you more if you continue to be engaged and remain interested.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. It is easy for us to lose sight of the institutions that govern us. We don't realize how much these institutions (e.g. government, media, marriage) impact our daily lives and have help subliminally shape our personalities and beliefs. This class analyzes the very different paths men and women are forced to take due to implicit and explicit gender norms.

    Course highlights:

    This is a women and gender studies class, but the focus was largely on the oppressive institutions that impact how we decide to live our lives. I realized a lot about myself while taking this course. We did a project where we had to help a hypothetical mother of two find safety, shelter, food, and schooling for her children. In this hypothetical, but very real, story, a non-American mother of two is trying to leave her husband because he is abusive. Our job was to help her create a plan. We had to figure out how she would be able to safety leave her husband with her children, bring her to a shelter, find her a local job (we actually had to search for real jobs in the area), then find reasonable housing near schools and bus lines, and create a budget for a whole year. I did not expect this project to impact me so significantly. I was stressing so much about a hypothetical situation, genuinely worried about how this woman would survive if this situation were real. After many hours of research and calculations, this woman would barely be able to support her and her children, even with government/state support. I felt so fortunate and motivated to help by the end of this assignment.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really try to engage yourself in the topics and learn from all the readings. A very important part of being successful in this course is learning and understanding how we are personally and socially affected by our surroundings.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course has helped me to see the world from a broader perspective. I have been able to identify with the subject in many, many ways. The professor is excellent.

    Course highlights:

    I have enjoyed learning about my place in the world and how the decisions I make matter not only to me but will make a difference to those around me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read, of course, all the literature required, and be willing to ask questions and take advantage of one on one time with the professor when available, as well as being an active participant in the discussion groups.
