    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It gives you a good insight to the reasons why you feel the way you feel about sexuality, especially if you are a woman. It may challenge a lot of people's beliefs about women but it will also help people understand themselves.

    Course highlights:

    The readings are so interesting even the long ones. The in-class discussions are eye-opening and respectful. It challenges stereotypes by working to understand where they originate from.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and understand the required vocabulary, what you don't know on the tests may be shocking. Make sure you can provide evidence for your opinions if you choose to put them on the test, be open minded to changing your opinion as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is both troubling and compelling. Contrary to popular perception, the study of female sexuality is not exclusively about and for women. Dr. Todd provides coursework and perspectives which are all-gender-inclusive, including considerations of non-binary gender. This course is, at its heart, a social justice course. The materials Dr. Todd provides are varied and interesting, and accessed from a variety of sources and media which truly support learning and present multiple viewpoints and considerations. Dr. Todd is also open, accessible, and truly focused on the open exchange of ideas and the development of her students' critical thinking skills. This was a wonderful, relevant course which deepened my perception of human interaction.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a depth and breadth of applicable understanding of how sex, gender identity, and sexuality are impacted by prescriptive social norms. I was also forced to assess how women have figured into social, sexual, and gender equations in various cultures, and evaluated the role of social control in our cultural perceptions of "normative." As a woman, I experienced a great deal of embarrassment and grief during this course, and through this gained a more open understanding of the undertow which guides some of my own gender performance and social roles.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Utilize the wealth of varied course materials, and approach each assignment with a critical eye. Dr. Todd is open and encourages independent thought and, provided it is well-informed and thoughtful, differing arguments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Awesome professor teaching about a super interesting topic. This class was genuinely intriguing and I learned a ton. I learned as much from the in-class lectures and discussions as I did from the readings, if not more! I bonded a lot with the people around me and learned a lot about women and sexuality.

    Course highlights:

    There were a few times when we had outside speakers come and serve on mini-panels for the class session, and all of these were really cool and interesting. Sometimes we watched video clips or documentaries in class and a few times our homework was to watch some episodes of certain TV shows like "Girls." I loved talking with my group members every day, though if the people in your group aren't good then having to talk to them all the time might get annoying. The best part of the class was simply the topic and material - we learned about stuff that is so interesting to me and a lot of other people.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Grade breakdown: midterm exam = 40%, final exam = 40%, & 10 1 page concept papers worth 2% each so = 20% total. Attendance/participation do not count but you are required to physically turn in your concept papers and the exam questions included stuff that was only discussed in class. Make sure you're paying attention, Prof. Weitz will randomly call on people to answer questions/contribute to discussions. ***If you're a Barrett student, I highly recommend doing an honors contract for this course. For me, I had to do a presentation in class with other honors students in the class as a group on the topic of sexuality in social media, which we had to do original research for. It was fairly easy to pull off and we learned a lot in the process too.
