    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to take a look into the the social problems that we have in our society today and other issues.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were working together with the different groups to look at the world differently. Learning how others around the world dealt with social issues such as poverty, war, and other issues that the human beings are faced with.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best tip would be to always be ahead of the course by researching the subject at hand before heading to class. That way you are knowledgeable on the topic to be able to discuss it with the class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is incredibly informative of the cause and effects of today's biggest issues regarding social interactions between people and cultures. The content of this class WILL be applicable to any major you pursue, since some form of social act is required to achieve a major in the first place. Learning the contents of this class will allow you to pinpoint social problems and decipher the solutions to them, which is a very useful skill to have in the work environment.

    Course highlights:

    I thought one of the most profound things I've learned in this class were the concepts surrounding Invisible privilege. As most people know, Invisible privileges are the privileges (or benefits) people have without even noticing or acknowledging it. For example, the opportunities available to a white man may differ from those available to a black woman. But what i found the most interesting about this concept was the way how people subconsciously categorized themselves or other people. For example, if some people were asked to look into a mirror and tell someone what they saw, a white male might say he just saw 'a person' while a black male might say he saw 'a black person' and a white female might say she just saw 'a woman' while a black female might say she saw 'a black woman'. It seems as if a white male is socially considered the most simple of categorizations, while a female of any other race is the most complex of categorizations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would heavily advise reading the text-based content of the course carefully. Pick out every little detail in the the text. Retaining this information is very important for the quizzes and tests assigned in the class. Although a large portion of the content is learned through lectures and note taking, it is very difficult to land a perfect score on a quiz or test without knowing the contents of the text well.
