    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because of the content within the class and the conversations we engaged in, we talked about real things and real life. How our bodies have been created in society as more of an object than what it truly is. It really gets you to think about your own body as a whole and how you use it on a daily basis.

    Course highlights:

    Within this class I was really able to see how I use my body in society and what that tells me about myself, I engaged in an embodied experience where I learned a lot about myself and how my body can be used in many different ways. We talked about how our bodies are instantly given labels and stereotypes the day we are born and how these things have shaped our day to day lives and how we perceive things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course you need to come into class with an open mind. Allow for how you perceive things to show others how everything can be perceived differently, depending on your race, gender, culture and how you were raised.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class challenged me to produce an extensive research project but this experience was unique and enjoyable because it allowed room for a topic I was passionate about.

    Course highlights:

    This course was essential for me to tie in the value between environmental justice and the fundamental ecological elements of water. Even if you are not an environmental policy major, everyone should take this course to understand the value natural resources hold.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even if you do not have a particular interest in environmental studies I strongly suggest taking an environmental ethics course. If you have no background knowledge in the subject area it will give you an valuable global perspective on resources and environmental ethics that is useful for absolutely anyone.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this class, we learned exclusively about the damage that has been done to the environment around the world. Many people have a general idea about what's happening and what the result will be, but this class went far more in depth. We learned about the many different ways humans are contributing to the destruction of environment, and on top of that we learned how we could better our behavior and find alternatives.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was our major group project. We had to pick a place and talk about its impact on the environment. My group chose to work on the Aiken Center at UVM. It's a building that's completely environmentally friendly through methods of clean energy and recycling/reusing - including the sources of energy and uses of water. We learned about the different kinds of alternatives buildings can use to make them safer. The building relied on solar energy from panels that were places around the campus. We also learned about how they had a filtration system in place that would clean all of the water that was used so that it could be reused through showers and bathrooms. The filtration system was 100% plants. It was incredibly fascinating and although it was expensive initially, it eventually pays off.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the assigned readings. They cover a lot of different scenarios that cause environmental damage and the history behind it. You're also assigned a book called Ishmael, and I would definitely read that all the way through. It was wonderfully written.
