    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because racism is not a thing of the past. Yes, it is not as institutionalized as it once was, but as Glenn could explain better than me, it is still present. It has adapted with the times and is more nuanced, but if you pay attention you can see it. Glenn helps you open your eyes to the discriminatory tactics people use.

    Course highlights:

    I learned things about history that high school never taught me! Forgotten names and faces of people who shaped the world that we are living in now. During all of my schooling I never learned what the trail of tears actually was until taking this course. You learn horrific truths, but they are all things that you need to know.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to memorize... A lot! This class is primarily made up of multiple choice tests, and if you are not good at taking those I don't know if this class is for you. Glenn does offer a bunch of extra credit opportunities which will really give you an edge for your GPA.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love this class because I learned a lot about different races and ethnicities. When I was in high school I wasn't​ aware, I wish high schoolers were more educated about different cultures.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that media and books have lots of stereotypes against different races, I learned about Asians, Mexicans, Indians, Jews, and Caucasians.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students who are planning to take this class is to study. This class isn't an easy A. I would advise them to take good notes and review them on your free time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is eye opening and exposes people to various aspects of the world they may not have been previously aware of. The professor offered plenty of extra-credit opportunities, but I never found it worth my time to do them. You can get an A in the class with thorough notes, attending class every day, and going over the review sheets for each test.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Tsunokai would often show video clips during class that involved current issues and provided a different perspective to observe the issue from than how mainstream society views it. He was able to keep some of the content of the course relevant to current society, making it easier to grasp certain concepts.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    While this course has plenty of extra-credit opportunities available, I wouldn't suggest focusing on them unless it is necessary or you have the extra time to. I was able to get an A in this class with hardly any extra credit just by focusing on the lectures and going over the review sheets provided. That said, those review sheets are your best friend for preparing for tests. They cover just about every question you'll see on the test in one way or another. Professor Tsunokai may sometimes mention specifically in class which aspect of a topic you will want to remember for the test, so if you skip class, you might not find the review as useful as it can be.
