    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures are very informative and challenge the traditional American culture's way of thinking. It opens your mind to various global issues while studying the different cultures of many countries.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what it's like to feel like an outsider looking in on your own culture through a very interesting article we read. We also addressed a lot of controversial global issues, and the importance of ethnography in anthropology.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend lectures, and study the power points. The book definitions are useful on exams as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very interesting. Personally I believe it is important to have knowledge about current and past cultures because diversity, especially now, is what makes the world go round and its important to have a basic understanding of this concept.

    Course highlights:

    The cultural videos we were to watch gave such insight to the many topics we explored during lecture. Videos give a different perspective to the knowledge learned from the teacher.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I say go for it, you will be able to do well as long as you are willing to put in the time to study and think deeply about the topics you learn. Study a little bit everyday instead of cramming to maximize success!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is very engaged in the course and it makes the learning experience much easier. He is also very eager to help.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to put things into perspective thanks to this professor. Since the professor is an anthropologist Professor James added a human touch to all the textbook readings and lectures.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrasiante and finish the work early. The work itself isn't very hard but it's easy to let it get away from you. Also, study for for the tests and you can easily ace them.
