    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a huge mind opener; it examines human interaction and cultural norms.

    Course highlights:

    This course was intriguing, it made me perceive things differently. I learned that our everyday social norms, that we’ve been brought up to don’t always make sense.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My main advice would be to keep up with the reading. Staying on track with the book helps you engage in class and do well on quizzes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class, unlike psychology, isn't very scientific or difficult to understand. It opened my brain to the very true social realties of the world, in the most interesting way possible. I finally understood why people do what they do, for reasons other than the psychological makeup of the brain. I found out what hidden biases I have, and why I have them. It has allowed me to see things from other people's perspective, which made me immensely more understanding of the unfortunate struggles of others that I was completely ignorant of previously.

    Course highlights:

    For one, I had an awesome professor who made everything so clear and entertaining. But aside from that, probably learning about my hidden biases was the most beneficial to me. I am definitely not a racist, homophobe, sexist, or anything else prejudice, as I believe everyone is an equal and should be treated that way. However, after taking this course, I found out that I do stereotype people based on race or gender without even knowing it. I don't intentionally do it, but it just happens subconsciously. And becoming aware of this, made it so I am immensely more conscious of the fact that I am doing it, and that I need to stop.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Nothing in this class requires heavy thought or scientific analysis, which often makes people believe that they don't need to attend class or study. However, there are a ton of key concepts and terms within this course, which we all know is learned through memorization. However, I found actually attending class every day that I had it was so much more beneficial than sitting with 200 flashcards the day before an exam. Listening to lecture is the best form of studying, as you hear all of these terms and ideas and are able to understand and put your own meaning behind them.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course with this specific professor because she is very opinionated and sometimes we get a bit too off task. She also grades fairly hard, and never really goes over what will be on the test except for the short answer questions.

    Course highlights:

    I did seem to learn how to adapt to my professors teaching habits, how to do the homework and listen to lectures in ways that make them easier to understand.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend paying close attention and doing the readings that she assigns online because those are always on the test as she questions.
