Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class focuses on social structures and cultures throughout the world. From it, I learned how diverse social systems thrive and what happens when they don't. It teaches the how behind everything and how it is we live today. I recommend it because it helps you become incredibly aware of not only the society you live in, but also the entire world.
The hightlights of this course would have to be analyzing diverse cultures (living situations, taboos, roles, etc) through stories and media. For example, we had the opportunity of watching "Whale Rider" a film about a girl finding and becoming her role in her society. It taught us so much of that culture and helped us pick out similarities in our own society.

Advice for students:
Advice I would give students about taking this course is to really listen to the lectures. Professors of anthropology generally have a lot of knowledge to share and insight to offer on such topics.
