    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is one of the most interesting courses. It helps students understand the world through the language used, the biases that can be brought about, the circle of conversation, and to see the matrix of language at work. People use language every day, but when we do, sometimes there are implications created by tone and sound of voice. In fact the English language or any language, is created from sounds in different synchronizations along with feeling behind the words spoken. Once students understand this, learning languages becomes quite a bit easier and this is all from taking Linguistic Anthropology.

    Course highlights:

    Linguistic Anthropology, the word itself might seem intimidating. However, this course can help students see the use of language and begin to understand what many do to language to make others fear circumstances or create strong but wrong feelings. For example, one article read was entitled AIDS and It's Metaphors. Now, the general populace believes one can get AIDS. But the truth of the matter is it is not the AIDS that someone obtains, but the HIV. AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. This does not imply homosexuality or the use of dirty needles it is just an unfortunate circumstance that some people have. This course sorts through the manipulation and reveals the truth behind the words.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for some work load, there will not be that much to overwhelm your studies. But it will be enough to work toward. This course is fantastic, the book you will receive is a great read, in fact now that I think about it, there was a lot of reading in the class. Articles, books, periodicals, reviews, etc. But the books that are read are not too lengthy and are very entertaining and interesting works of non-fiction.
