    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great introduction into cultural anthropology and its significance outside of the classroom walls.

    Course highlights:

    The professor offers many opportunities for great insight into complex topics faced by mankind and the discussion sections allow for more in-depth conversation. The topics discussed have real-life applications. One of the most striking things I learned throughout this course was about perspective; how the role of subjective perspective and perception are translated through different types of media whether it be through film or online gaming.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering taking this course, I encourage you to keep an open mind and a willingness to have previous thoughts questioned and challenged. It is important to keep up with the reading and to complete the discussion assignments in a timely fashion, as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very interesting class that deals with different aspects of the cultural theory. Professor Alan Klima lectures are really interesting and he emphasizes that there are many different ways to think about a particular issue in culture. In order to pass the class you mostly have to do the readings, go to class and pay attention. You do however have to be willing to read the readings before class and make sure you annotate and comprehend the material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about culture, gender, the advertising of culture, race relations, and also stereotypes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to do the readings and make sure to annotate the text, especially if they are on the longer side. I do emphasize that readings are important and that if a student does not comprehend the material they should talk to the T.A. because exams are very dependent on readings.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First off Davis is another UC that runs with the quarter system. There are pros and cons: if you are a student who needs variety, likes multiple choice questions, but also procrastinates- the quarter system is for you.

    Course highlights:

    If you like meeting one on one a lot and the teacher knowing your name, and smaller class sizes, stay away from UC Davis (until grad school). It's the sad reality that our university prioritizes research over actually teaching.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Next we address class size. If you are okay with getting professors who are better with their research and field than actually teaching, and you are okay with large class sizes (100 and more) then UC Davis is for you.
