    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only did this course teach me more about myself than I had ever realized, but it also gave me a sombering insight to a world of people I thought I knew. I learned from many different perspectives and saw through many different peoples' eyes.

    Course highlights:

    Through volunteer work, I was able to experience some of the most troublesome social problems that many Americans face on a daily basis and was given a chance to experience the stories of many. It was eye-opening and liberating in many ways, I've never before felt so guilty for being a racial/classical/etc. majority, but at the same time, I've never felt more empowered or inspired to make a change in the community and even the world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read a text book but don't forget to come into this course with an open mind and be prepared to let go of notions or upbringings that you've known/believed since you were a kid. Your eyes will be opened and your heart will be fueled.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is incredibly difficult just based on the amount of reading that is required to complete for each class session. However, the amount of things you learn about several different social issues makes it all worthwhile. Especially with this recent election, learning about the opposing sides and issues really changes the way a person sees our society, and the community they live in.

    Course highlights:

    This course really has changed my outlook when it comes to social issues throughout our society. While the focus is mainly on the liberal viewpoint, there are those who play "Devil's Advocate" of sorts who really make us think about who we are as people, and what we are doing to help change our community for the better.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The main advice I would give would just to do ALL of the reading. We do not talk about it in class nearly ever, but with each reading, there is a reading journal that needs to be written. And trust me, trying to write the reading journal without knowing the reading is incredibly difficult. Also, in addition, for the volunteer hours, do not procrastinate on finding an organization to work with. It is stressful to rush towards the end of the semester when you already have so much other stuff to worry about.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course kept me engaged throughout the entire semester. We discussed current events and issues every class period and held open discussions with the teacher and peers on our views

    Course highlights:

    I thoroughly enjoyed talking about current events and controversial issues and having an open discussion and getting to hear the views of my peers and professor. We also had a semester long research paper focused on a controversial issue that interested us where we debated both sides of the issue. The research in the paper itself along with the class discussions kept me engaged and opened my mind to different view points. I gained a lot of knowledge in several matters in this class alone.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of deadlines for the research paper. Although it seems grueling to do the outlines and sample papers every week, it ultimately helps you build the contents for the final paper.
