    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a great introduction for exploring and understanding different cultures. It wasn't very content heavy but Orlee presented the information in an effective manner so it was fairly easy to understand!

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the multicultural project. For this project you are to write a paper on an interview you conducted with a different culture. This paper allows you to enhance your understandings of other cultures besides your own and to embolism ethnocentrism.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class! Orlee does not expect her students to read an assigned text book, however, she does assign D2L assignments specific to that days lecture. Also, she does do extra credit activities throughout the semester, which are in class as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very intellectual man with a lot of knowledge on the subject. Only downside is the size of the class; which, at Oshkosh, can reach approx. 200+ students. In this regard, discussion is hard to facilitate. As a lecture-focused class, however, the topics were interesting and the instruction was good.

    Course highlights:

    Much of this class was a review of previous courses I've taken. If you've been introduced to sociological concepts in the past, such as the ideas of Marx, Weber, and other notable sociologists, it will be redundant. As a broad intro class, though, it succeeded in providing a general outlook on the various topics sociologists pursue.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Notes. Detailed notes. The same I could argue for any college course for any college student. The tests were based primarily (if not entirely) on lecture material, so taking rigid notes is essential. Attending study sessions (when applicable) would also be a great idea for extra assistance, as it's sometimes easier to grasp material when in a smaller group setting.
