    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course that will give students a real look into the minds of people around the world. The reason why I recommend this class is because of exposure; this course teaches the concept that different ideal, beliefs, and cultures are not necessarily bad or wrong simply because they're not a part of your personal reality of the world. The perspectives of cultural realities in the course make it a real eye-opener to learning how to truly understand why what other people do in their culture makes perfect sense to them.

    Course highlights:

    The point of the course is to help students taking it understand what culture really is, how it changes, and why any of that is important to whatever field you're going into. Some of the greatest take-aways I had in this course were learning how to view other cultures in a way that's not "Indians treat cows like gods because they're weird," but rather, "because people of India believe that cows are directly connected to deity, they treat their cows not only as deity and family for [these reasons]." That perspective and observation skill is very useful due to its wide application in any field.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    While the lectures are amazing, mind-blowing, and eye-opening, my main cautions are these: The reading load is HEAVY (both in length and vocabulary), so it would be good to learn how to quickly gain the main ideas from each paragraph beforehand (I'd suggest perhaps taking WRTG 150 or a similar reading course first if that's a struggle for you). Most of my time in this course went to the readings. In addition, there is something called an ethnographic project which will be central to your grade. It is similar to gathering data for a survey, but the focus is more on interviews and observation of a particular culture. If you have difficulty talking to a lot of new people or performing interviews, I wouldn't recommend not taking this class, but I would offer this as a heads up so you know it's coming. If you're creative, you can actually make it really fun. Other than that, be open to new ideas. Because you will be bombarded with them in this course, and it will be amazing.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it changed my entire view about the world. You learn about other's defendable realities. People around the world have different cultures, but is the culture created by the people? Or are the people simply part of the culture? This class teaches a possible way of thinking about that question: the minds of the people create the world. (WOW!) Thoughts are what control behavior, and behavior shapes a culture.

    Course highlights:

    There was a lot of psychology involved in this course, which I loved as a psychology minor. My eyes were just in general opened to so many peoples and cultures and history I had never known before.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to WORK and to READ, but its super interesting, and super worth it. You'll emerge feeling like your brain is expanded 100 times over, and ready to embrace all of it.
