    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My gender and public health class was fascinating and was the first class that enticed me to study International Studies focusing on international development and health. Learning about the world through a lens of gender and education were specifically interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how men and women are obviously different, but rather why this is important when examining health and education. For example, men and women have different biological needs and also different access to health across the world. Furthermore, many major health crises stem from lack of education for both men and women.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read! Reading is an important part of comprehending information. If you don't put in the time reading, not only are you not learning, you are not able to participate in conversations about that weeks topics and it makes it harder to succeed in the future as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was interesting to be able to compare and contrast the ever-changing dynamics of gender norms and roles from country to country and region to region. It was a very interactive class as there was a lot of diversity and people could share often vastly different experiences regarding gender. On the other hand, it gave great cause for concern to see how patriarchy married to its numerous flaws and loopholes, had done more harm than good to the economic, mental, social and cultural life of women around the globe. However, it proved to be an awesome 10 weeks spent with the very knowledgeable and amiable Mrs Hampanda.

    Course highlights:

    As one from a conservative background, I barely knew anything about reproductive health or health, in general. Also, I wasn't so informed about how society could make or mar the existence of people solely based on gender. The course made me much more understanding and appreciative of transgenders, women and others not of my gender.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be attentive in class as there are always very interesting and informative discussions going on and every class requires a 2-page summary of the class readings which are often lengthy. If you enjoy reading and writing like me, you'll love the class.
