    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Richards is very laid back and flexible. She allows the class to be an open discussion with all opinions and view points welcome. Having an open classroom, allows people not only to learn what a teacher has to say on a matter, but several different views of a matter that can broaden a person's insight.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were our drawn out class discussions. Our planned 20 minute discussions, would always go well past the planned time because so many people had something thoughtful to say on the matter we were discussing. Having this freedom to class discussion significantly increased my knowledge on modern day happenings in the news.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Talk. The best thing a person can do for themselves in this class is get out of their comfort zone and speak up during class discussions. All opinions matter in this class and I am sure many other students in the class want to say the same thing, but they do not. So speak up and be the voice for the people who don't speak.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    She is a wonderful professor, over all she makes you think and not just on a one side opinion but she makes sure to open the field to all views. I highly recommend this class if you would like to get a deeper understanding of society's views along with figuring out what your own views are. In her class the discussions are great and she picks great topics to go along with.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to critically analyze the world along with understanding and comprehending people. If there is something that I would have to say that you would need to take out of this course I would say to question everything, what makes the world the way it is, why do you see the world in that way, how were you influenced, and is it because that is what society has placed on you or did you develop this thought on your own?

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to succeed the best advice I have is to participate. This class is similar to a foreign language class if you do not participate you are not getting anything out of the class and not learning as much as you could. The best thing to do in this class is make questions, speak up, be daring, because in this class you are not discouraged for thinking outside of the box.
