    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a wonderful Psychology-based Human Sexuality course in that looked at human views on sexuality in cultures all over the world. Professor Keane did an exemplary job of tying the textbook material into interesting discussions to engage the students. Even the weekly essays, with research, were intriguing and fun to prepare. You will learn the "how and why" that cultures have the beliefs and customs that they utilize. It is impossible to walk away without a new view of at least a few topics.

    Course highlights:

    Because I am a writer at heart, I really enjoyed the weekly essays that were part of our syllabus. In my research for citing my essays, I could extenuate what the textbook had already taught us and learn even more about customs in which I am interested. You will be required to write a research paper, but Professor Keane allows you to choose your own topic. This course was taken in Summer I session of 2017 (last semester), so it is still fresh in my mind. I remember that my research paper was entitled, "Is it Love or is it Co-Dependency?" My research took me into realms of causations for the possible diagnosis of codependency disorder, but also into articles relating to relationship struggles. The research fully intrigued me to the point that I literally would get lost in the interesting articles I read in order to write my paper. I ultimately received an A on my research paper. I am a Psych major, but I feel this course would interest and immerse students of nearly any field of study.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As mentioned, this is a psychology course. You will need an open mind to absorb some of the material that is taught. Also, you can't have hang-ups about viewing realistic photos of human reproductive parts of the body; they are definitely in the textbook, as you will learn the names of inner and outer reproductive anatomy. Even if you think that this task would be a breeze (because you already know it) -- you will learn something new, I assure you.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very interesting course and it also incorporates modern day society views.

    About the outlaw of female genital mutaliation in Africa and how they are sending doctors to the tribes explaining the reasons why it's bad and the health risks as they do not perform in a disinfected area.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start working on your research paper early! There is a lot to do to make sure you have a great paper.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very demanding. There are readings, assignments, discussion posts, and discussion repsonses, quizzes, an exam, and also a 2000 word research paper due at the end of the course; but that's college. If you honestly want to earn your degree and not just do pointless work, then college is not for you. During this course, I've learned so much about the complexities behind sexuality, and it isn't as black and white as you may think it is. The weekly discussions were eye opening, as you get to see how other people think of some very controversial topics. Overall, this course was well worth it.

    Course highlights:

    What I've learned most from this course is how complex our bodies and our sexuality actually are. During this course you focus on many controversial topics such as: Transgenderism, rape, pornography, sex education, homosexuality, and many other topics. It's quite interesting to actually cover these, as you get to understand the history behind these topics, and how society actually feels on them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students considering this course should stay on top of their work every single day. Read all of the assigned readings, make sure to check the discussion board every day, as fellow classmates post daily. Make sure to hit over the word count that is required for all assignments as well. Be sure to use APA format when doing assignments, add substantial references, do your research and proofread before submitting any work.
