    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor was amazing as well as the topics covered!

    Topics covered in this class are all about marriage and family in social and cultural context. This such as dating and marriage styles, child-rearing, husband and wife interaction, single parent families, and alternative lifestyles are covered.

    Hours per week:

    Advice for students:

    Never miss a class and always take notes! Not taking notes in class is a recipe for disaster! Reading from the book is minimal however I would still recommend reading for a deeper understanding of the topics covered.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the information that was taught was quite fascinating and the stories my teacher would tell about her experiences were very humorous and enlightening. There was this one story she told us where she dated a pro football player who gifted her a corvette car as an example of how nice things that are done without genuine emotions behind them don't mean anything.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that you are more likely to divorce if you had cohabitated with your partner before marriage and that the significant other you cohabitate with is less likely to be the person you marry. I also learned that the most occurring interracial relationship is a white man and an Asian woman. The highlights of the course was the class project which involved making a video like that of a tv show. The cinematography, editing skills, and work that my classmates put in was amazing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course is not difficult at all as long as you do the work, take the assignments seriously, manage your time well, and study for the course you will pass.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class focused on the family lifestyle and how it's changed throughout the ages. It was based on debates throughout class time and simple videos that brought to light how the "typical" family has changed.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing about this course was that it was in a debate style and very little work in the book. Books can teach us a lot, but! learning how other people were raised, their personal family values, their views on the world; you can learn more. It wasn't a cut throat environment, it's safe and aimed to help you view the world in a more social environment. I personally learned that there are more families focused on keeping the family together, money isn't everything and that education is more important in almost all families. Different wealth status effects how much access children and adults have to continue education, job options, how they will or are struggling to provide for their families.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class. Skipping this class to hang out with friends or work will not help you pass. You won't really need the book, but if this your focus in your major, it may be helpful. Most of the tests are off the notes you take from the board, take detailed notes. Ask questions. Don't stay quiet, this will help when you need to do your paper. Be open to see from other's viewpoints. It's all about learning and seeing things in a non-judgmental way.
