    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Pollock was engaging, insightful, and ruthless when it came to educating us about the painful truth of race in the United States.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about how the idea of race and racism was started. It was important for me to learn about the differences between race, nationality and ethnicity. Professor Pollock made sure that we also knew the difference between racism and discrimination, with that, we also learned about the sociological definition of racism. To top it off, we also learned about inter-ethnic racism.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings, participate in class, and do not be afraid to ask question (and comment). Take her class seriously, because it is one of those things you learn in school that will always show up in the real world.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it provides a lot of insight into a concept that not many people are aware of. This class opened my eyes to the racial issues our society faces every day and motivated me to seek ways to change it.

    Course highlights:

    The group discussions we had were definitely the highlight of the course. I am not big on speaking in large groups, but everyone was very open to differing opinions and intellectual debate was strongly encouraged. Through these discussions, I learned that racial issues are extremely prevalent in the United States and that they affect each and every one of us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course seriously. I can say with confidence that this is the first course I have taken where I will apply the concepts I learned throughout my life, no matter what career or lifestyle I decide to pursue.
