    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course challenges you to look at other cultures through a different lens then you usually would. It teaches you not only how others live, but teaches you how to embrace cultural differences. I believe this is an very important thing for students to learn.

    Course highlights:

    We did many activities and learned about many different ways of life around the world. For example, we read an article named NACIREMA that spoke about a culture obsessed with their body image and how their teeth looked. This culture also had many "potions" they would take to feel their best. Coming from an outside view, to many classmates this sounded like a weird tribe. When in fact, it was the American culture we all live in. This course taught me how to analyze various cultures without being ethnocentric. We are surrounded with differences every day, this course allowed me to gain a new way of thinking when it comes to others around me. I learned that it is important to look at everything through a non judgmental lens and try to understand instead.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the book readings and take annotations. It helps tremendously to be engaged in your reading and to be able to go back and look at notes you took on your readings for memory.
