    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Khalsa ensures that students are truly engaged in his course. His teaching style revolves a lot around student lead discussion. He does not lecture for the entire class period but rather raises alternative questions to which students can respond and converse about. We were pushed to think deeper on current issues in ways that I hadn't thought about before.

    Course highlights:

    I am grateful for this course because it allowed me to see a greater perspective on controversial issues. I learned to consider and understand others opinions in ways that I hadn't before. In all, this course can offer real world tools that are useful in and out of the classroom setting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend class and engage as much as possible in classroom discussions to get the full experience. Professor Khalsa will call on students at random so be prepared to contribute to the conversation.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor makes the material easy to understand, and he makes material that may be uninteresting fun and enjoyable. The course is not super paperwork heavy and there is only three major exams within the course. There is one term paper at the end (which the class is allowed to change the due date). Overall, the course is very flexible and the work required isn't extremely difficult and it doesn't take long to complete.

    Course highlights:

    There are multiple units within the course, regarding multiple social issues. Issues like racialization, gender inequality, and racism, among many others, are discussed and analyzed. My personal highlight within the course is the gender inequality unit, as that was the

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the study guides. The professor practically provides the answers to the guides, and he takes the questions from them (usually word-for-word) and puts them on the exams. If the students has the theories memorized, along with the study guides the professors gives, and pays attention during lectures, then the student should pass the course with no difficulty at all.
