    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed how well-rounded I found this class. I went into it not really sure what to expect, especially considering the 7 books that were required. However, it was such an interesting class that now, 6 years later, I still think about the things that we talked about every day. Music, food, architecture, urban legends, these are just a few of the things that shape our entire culture everyday. Things that don't seem like they would mean much, are literally chalk full of meaning and history.

    Course highlights:

    We watched documentaries about zydeco music and the man who tight rope walked between the world trade center towers in the 70s. We shared old family recipes and talked about the importance of food in a culture. We discussed the MANY meanings of headstone imagery and sculptures. There was so much to talk about I could have spent and entire semester of classes in that field and not have been bored.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be discouraged about the amount of books or the amount of outside hours to spend, it will all be worth it. Don't think you will cram information in your head for a test and be done. Everything we talked about in that class comes back to me at some point almost every day.
