    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was so relevant to my own personal experiences as a student of color. It taught me so much about history that I didn't know before, it basically taught me everything between the lines of what I'd learned about history previously. This course was a great one-year course of ethnic studies. Of course, it's not completely comprehensive but it's a great buffer course for those interested in history, sociology, and/or ethnic studies,,

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about the history of this country - the good, the bad, and the ugly. The course mainly focused on the contributions of different ethnic groups to American culture and society and how many of these ethnic groups have been (and currently are being) oppressed. The course focused primarily on Native American, African-American, and Asian-American history in the US - much of which is not learned in traditional history. I learned all about the Indigenous people of the American land and manifest destiny, and how Native American continue to be displaced and ignored to this very day. I learned all about the Black Panthers and other African-American liberation movements, as well as the different ways that the American government and society tried to make all Blacks seem like the inferior race. I learned about Asian-American liberation movements and Asian-Am activists and the model minority myth. This class gave me such a critical view on the world around me and the people I interact with. It allowed me to realize that there are systematic concepts that provide obstacles for some people and privileges for others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings! Not only will they help you understand the course material, but they're interesting. You'll get as much out of this class as you put in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone who is interested in American Historu, history race relations, or culture this is the class you can take. You will learn more in this class they you can wooly or see in your life. You will find that most of what you learned in your high school history class was told in one perspective while in this class you'll ne seeing America in a different lens.

    Course highlights:

    it made me see how at some point in history that every ethnic, racial or religious group unless you are WASP ( white Anglo axon and protestant)WAhas been discriminated against in the US. I remember the first lecture was an eye opener because I was so angry sad and disappointed about how the US govt. erased the Native American population. We talked about rap music origins, the perception of Muslims, how race is a social construct. We had a debate about Beyoncé' s superbowl performance and formation video about the black lives matter movement and the colonization and current state of Hawaii. There's a lot that I learned in that class that has definently changed the way I look at the media, books and has made me more appreciative, see the beauty in other cultures and not to compare to cultures and say that one is superior to the other.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is the most interesting cluster out of all the clusters and it is the cluster with the most reading. Read impost of the readings because you will be tested on your knowledge. Before you get to class the professors expect you to read most of the material. They only give an overview and sometimes their lecture doesn't cover entirely what you read. Most of the readings are long but they are interesting. Plus you do a research paper and a final paper. The cluster is designed as a yearlong course but you snot have to take it all year. You can decide if you only want to take it for a quarter or two. If you take it for a full year you have to take a seminar class at the end, which is a class that .eetx up once a week for 3 hours, which is less compared to the two quarter prior where you have a 2 he lecture rppteixe a week with a two hr. discussion. But since its a cluster you knock out a good chunk of your fees out of the way, if you can do mostnofmthe reading in this class reading formotjermclasses will be q cake walk

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in the social structure of the U.S., how things came to be, and the origins of things like racial stereotypes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal of the social history of Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, and African Americans in the United States. We learned about racism in an eye opening way that was fun and engaging as well as serious and heart breaking. Because of this class, I am more culturally sensitive and and socially aware.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read as much as you're interested, but minimum, complete at least one full reading and skim the others. Discussion participation is an important part of your grade, and the readings are necessary references for exams.
