    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is an interesting subject if you enjoy history and sciences. However, a delivery through a lecture format can get boring sometimes. Make sure to take plenty of notes and I wouldn't recommend leaving after the break, as you could miss a lot of material. Definitely read the book as you will need it for a few quizzes.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how different societies interact and interacted with and within each other. The formation of cultures in different areas of the world and how they formed the way that they did. The divisions of anthropology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Studying is a must. Pay very close attention to what the lecture is about, because sometimes things show up on tests that seemed unimportant during the lecture. Make sure to take detailed notes and engage with the professor as she likes to engage with the class. Also since it's only once a week, don't skip, you will miss a lot of material and it will come back to haunt you on the test.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course. Dr. Verrelli is engaging, personable, and relatable. She is the reason I decided to become an anthropology major!

    Course highlights:

    This course outlines the 4 subfields of anthropology: biological, archaeological, medical, and linguistic. You learn the basics and main concepts of each subfields, watch videos that illustrate these concepts, and complete minimal online hw.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind, ask questions, and pay attention!
