    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was one of my favorites my first year of college. Dr. Farr was an excellent teacher and really helped me understand and learn about different cultures of the world. The way he taught his class was simple and well managed. We would read about a culture the night before a class, took a small quiz on it at the beginning of class and then went over the culture in depth. They way he did our mid term essay was amazing. Instead of a rough draft and then we would turn in the paper he did it in steps. Find our topic, write a thesis, body paragraphs, our conclusion, and a closing statement. I loved this technique and if every teacher ive ever had did this, I probably would have enjoyed writing essays.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definatley learning about native american tribes since i am 1/4 native american. And getting into really intense discussions about different aspects of cultures in class with everyone has their own thoughts and opinions and it made it so real. I learned a lot about the different cultures of the world and all around the world. I never realized how many different cultures we had and how big or small they are. I learned about all the different and crazy disgusting things these cultures have done as well and whats apart of their lifestyle.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always listen and pay attention. There's so much to learn in this class because if you dont listen you'll always miss something.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Peoples and cultures is a great way to find out if you want to continue in the field of Cultural anthropology. If you took anthro 101 and wanted more, 201 is a great class!

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part was the "make up assignments" where if you missed class, you could attend any event on campus and do a write up on different anthropological aspects you were able to discern at the event. I loved that!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read a lot! There are a lot of ethnographic pieces that you will cover. There will be a lot of films too!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is eye opening, with an interesting curriculum and the professor truly invests her time into the students. Well, the students that actually want to learn, anyways.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned that there are many cultures all over the world that have similar views on politics, religion and migration patterns. The longer the course went on, the more similarities I spotted.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the course materials, pay attention to each individual lecture, complete your assignments in a timely manner. If you're struggling with a section or don't understand something, talk to the professor. She will offer assistance however she can. Another option would be to find a study-buddy to meet up with and review said materials.
