    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened my eyes to how ignorant humans are when it comes to racial profiling. It showed me how the police were using racial profiling as a method to keep the jail beds filled and discriminate on a group in order to keep them oppressed. This course helped me better my writing skills in a friendly open environment.

    Course highlights:

    I gained insight on how privilege works. It showed me what African Americans go though and how hard their life is. It also showed how there are very few to no doors open for people coming out of jail, no way to better their lives and have a brighter future. How oppression and discrimination still happen today but they terms like racial profiling are used to make it seem like a different concept. Police brutality was studied as well as the oppression on minority groups.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open minded to new concepts, even when they go against what you thought you knew. Learning the truth about things may be difficult but it is the only way for a better tomorrow. Do not procrastinate on assignments and try to enjoy the learning process.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It only took a month and because of such a short time the amount of homework for a regular semester is bunched up and you have to stay on top of it but it is worth doing so you don't have to wait a whole year to finish English class at high school and the college experience was really mind changing!

    Course highlights:

    How to properly write and critique essays! Also how to read better and understand what your reading.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your homework. Pay attention in class and don't miss class!
