    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in the ever-changing social dynamic of humans. This course has a wide-ranging focus on traditionally suppressed groups, such as African-Americans and women.

    Course highlights:

    I liked being able to learn about the different resources that were available to learn about hate groups in the United States. I also liked being able to contribute to the course by discussing lesser well known groups that experienced prejudice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course takes place at a traditional liberal arts college. With that in mind, the discussion tends to sway more to the liberal-end of the political spectrum. This may make it uneasy to provide a conservative insight in order to establish a balance in the classroom. I felt that this aspect made it difficult to speak truthfully in the classroom. My advice would be to be brave and speak your mind eloquently in order to make yourself understood.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because it allows students to talk about stereotypes they have been put under and prejudices they have experienced without fellow classmates getting offended.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was being able to pick my group mates and having equal work loads throughout the semester. I learned that not sticking with people in your major is beneficial and broadens my understanding of people in different majors.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the articles that Dr. Sechrist posts. There were questions on the final that pertained to the readings, however they were a general overview and not specific one-sentence questions. Learning how to skim over readings and pick out the important facts is an important skill, and this course does pretty well on honing that skill.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course. Dr. Sechrist is a phenomenal teacher who is very knowledgeable about the subject matter (this is her field of study).

    Course highlights:

    Everything about stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination such as different forms of it, types, and outcomes. You learn about stereotypes in TV, the media, even childhood books. Beware, this course may ruin some of your favorite childhood movies (sorry...but this is stuff you should be aware of!). You complete two large projects, with miniature ones in between. It really is a fun course, especially with such a great, funny teacher.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    PLEASE read all the articles Dr. S gives you for material. All you need to know about each article is a few sentences of what the study found. But keep up on it. You will regret it when it comes to the Final.
