    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course because the books and information given only focus on very small parts of the world, rather than exploring all of the different cultures. These limitations make the course hard to enjoy and leave you with a small insight into a select few cultures.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great amount about how important culture shock is in a society, and how a society does not necessarily recognize the influences brought on by the mixture of cultures within its own region.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course, I would recommend that you ask the teacher to expand certain topics so that you can further your education by exploring a wider variety of cultures rather than a select few.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would not necessarily take this class because it does not offer much information of an abundance of cultures.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn the effects of moving from country to country and how the cultural barriers effect a person.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, interview people who are recently new to the United States to gain a better perspective.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Carattini did a wonderful job of introducing her students to the subject of anthropology, making them more aware of how culture influences the way they view the world and shapes their every day lives.

    Course highlights:

    This course challenged me to ask myself why I think the way I do. It helped me realize just how much my culture has shaped my life, which has in turn allowed to become more understanding of others. Although Professor Carattini used examples from all over the world, she emphasized the Gebusi, allowing the class to learn about this group in some depth.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, come with an open mind! One of the best things about this course was having the opportunity to learn from the class—most of us had either been born or had lived in another country. You will hear how people of other cultures view the world, which may make you uncomfortable, but try to understand why they think the way they do; you may learn something in the process.
