    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a great environment for learning new concepts that one might no find interesting. The professor is very realistic and breaks all the concepts down. He is very blunt at times but in a good way. you don't have to go to class because he doesn't do a roll call but it is very vital that you go because he really teaches everything that you will need to know when it comes to assignments and the tests. You will only have like 3-4 tests and that includes the final but if you come to class and read then you will do wonderfully. the professor is really good about understanding the college student schedule and trying to help you out as far as points. He gave out extra credit opportunities that could really help out your grade as long as you put in the work. the assignments usually consists of going to panels and then writing a piece about it. I went to several and they got me the extra credit as well as helped me learn about things I other wise knew nothing about.

    Course highlights:

    I would say the high light of the course was the lectures. it was always something new and untraditional from a regular lecture. He was not scared to say what everyone was thinking and just come from a point of view. I never knew there was so much phycology in black culture but the professor really opened my eyes to why the whole works the way it does due to this.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to succeed, go to class and read that is all there is to it. you read the material and ask questions and then when you get to class, the professor is going to talk about what you read and ask you what you don't understand. A conversation will stem from this and then the professor will explain everything.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened my eyes to different deep rooted governmental issues of racism and oppression faced by African Americans. All "tests" we took were in essay format which made it slightly more difficult but, if you paid attention then they weren't hard to pass.

    Course highlights:

    The exposure to issues of racism through a philosophical lens.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you like to skip class, not pay attention, and do not like reading then do NOT take this course. You will only be hurting yourself.
