    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Before this class, I had no idea how culture worked and how different the rest of the world works in comparison to the United States. Before this class, I was culturally incompetent, and did not have the same respect I do now for cultures outside of my own. I have gained a knowledge I can never forget and purely grow off of. I honestly believe the class should be taught before college and required in all schools.

    Course highlights:

    There are two basic definitions of cultures, the Individualists and the Collectivists. All cultures define these definitions in different ways but can be classified by the way they live their lives in categories such as time, identity, space, and non-verbal communication. Individualists are those who recognize personal promotion over the the goals of the group. Collectivists prioritize the group and their needs over their own needs and desires.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind and find truth in diversity and how normal it actually is. Never consider your own culture better or less than those who are different from you. Try and understand how others can think and feel without letting your personal opinions get in the way. Don't hold back when asked to try something new. Stay engaged in participation and conversation in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is not for everyone. It requires one to read the text so you can be prepared to discuss the information. The instructor is also tough and won't let you get away if you are not pulling your weight in the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were having my eyes opened to the realities of ethnocentrism. I've often wondered if the United States was superior or just appeared to be that way based on what I was taught in school. I really enjoyed learning about the different great religions. It was also fun to write an essay about myself and who I am as an exercise. I also thoroughly enjoyed learning about a country. Massey divided us into groups and we each took a portion of the topic and created a prezi. The class was also fun because Massey often showed youtube videos that were fun to watch.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to read the material in advance before class. You should come prepared. You should participate in class by providing input even if you don't think others will necessarily make sense of it. You should take advantage of the extra credit opportunities Massey gives you.
