    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants a deeper understanding and to be more educated on the social and environmental matters that are going on in the world.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the section where we talked about the individualization of responsibility. We talked about how, as things stand right now, we as consumers feel the need to do our part for the environment by recycling and conserving water and carpooling, etc. Our professor explained how while all of that is great, it hides the overlying problems with organization and structural factors that are put into play by the government and large corporations. What if, instead, companies focused on using compostable packaging, or if the government used water in a more sustainable manner, or if public transportation was made more available and convenient? While everyone doing their part is great, it makes the problem seem impossible to tackle because "nothing will change unless everyone changes" rather than structres and organizations changing. This topic and section really changed the way I look at things and I've become for more aware now of the problems in our society and who is really responsible besides consumers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely make sure to do all of the reading and answer the questions so that you will be prepared for the pop quizzes that are given, as well as be very prepared for the exam.
