    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Since I started college I have been very intrigued in the entire Anthropology/Archaeology department. I loved my first course, Anth 150. I loved it so much I decided to take another Anthropology course the next semester. I found that, personally, I have a huge interest in the study of different religions, cultures and study of traditions. In the Anth 222 course my expectations coming in were very high. I was astonished to find that the course not only met my expectations but exceeded everything I had thought before hand. Not only were the activities fun (going outside and sitting under a tree, sharing beliefs with a partner) but the lectures are very interesting as well. To anyone looking to take another Anthropology class I recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    In the class, I was able to choose one religion I had most interest in and study it the entire semester. Though this did not limit my further knowledge on other religions. In fact, every person studying each religion gave information to the rest of the class about the religion they chose, this way everyone learned about every religion. Also, the activities involved a lot of communication with others, whether it had been an individual partner or the entire class, it was always something new and a class I looked forward to every week. By the end of the semester I found myself knowing more about Catholicism then I had my whole life, and my family is Catholic! Besides Catholicism, I came out of this class with tons more knowledge on traditions, religious beliefs and even how certain religions form. To say this class taught me a lot is an understatement, the class teaches you a lot without you ever really feeling like you are in a lecture class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to watch the lectures online two or three days out of the week so it does not build up the day before class! Take notes in class on your favorite activities and most importantly communicate! Communication with others is key. Share your experiences and beliefs with partners in class and do not be vague. This class is about accepting one another no matter their beliefs or differences. Be open, and have fun!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to anybody who is interested in the study of humans and religions. It really helps discover many religions that are lesser known as well as connecting the the common thread that binds all religions together.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the different cultural religions that are under the radar or misunderstood my the mainstream. Seeing how these ancient religions practiced their beliefs helped me see how the mainstream 5 religions came about to being. It is truly a unique class that I full hardly recommend if you are a person who likes to open their mind to new and many times taboo subjects.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Simply showing up to class and participating will assure you to be successful in this course. No homework is given and weekly online quizzes are the only outside of class work there is. You get a whole week to complete is so it is not difficult.
