    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    During the first couple of lectures of this course I was immediately put in a position of being exposed to certain aspects of cultures that I had never heard of before, and just how different those societies and their cultures are in comparison to my own. It honestly made me quite uncomfortable to see that in some societies what is the transitioning for them in growing up in considered horrid in our own western culture. However, as the lectures continued, I started to see how beautiful these cultural traditions actually were; I did not become more open to this class on my own though. My professor, Dr. Joyce, holds such a passion for anthropology that during her lectures I began to find myself wanting to know more about a certain culture and why they participated and had these magnificent traditions.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlight of this entire course has been under the unit of how anthropologists uncover and unmask the past and history behind the artifacts they find. It is so magnificent how much the different anthropologists have to know in order to date the artifact, find out what period in time it came from and why/how it ended up there. For example, there are certain types of dating used to date certain artifacts. Each type of dating has a different limit on the years it can be used for and dated back to. Fluorine dating is useful for dating the object based on the amount of fluorine in an object such as bones or shells. Radio carbon dating can be used only on organic materials that are no more than fifty thousand years old. Potassium argon dating deals with volcanic ash because volcanic ash can preserve artifacts on a whole new level of impressive. From the span of 500,000 years ago to 3 billion years ago, it can be used towards the findings of human evolution. Now there is so much more to anthropology, there's even more than one field of it! Each type specializing in extreme certain knowledge. It is quite remarkable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give for this course is to not only take the notes from the board, but from what you hear Dr. Joyce (or any professor) say. The power points may have information, but she holds the complete in depth knowledge OF the information. Also, every reading that is assigned, read them all. They will be useful when it comes to class discussions and examples present on tests. Even more important study outside of class, in between both days before the next lecture, that will guarantee passing the course and having your eyes opened to all kind of new ways in how to approach not only different cultures, but different people or situations.
