    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Most people are discouraged by the fact that the course name is "Women's Studies" but don't let that get in the way of taking the course. This was an amazing eye opener to all aspects of feminism and the current status of the society in America. It was recommended to me by a friend, and I do not regret taking this course one bit. By taking this course does not automatically mean that you are a "hardcore feminist" or a "feminazi" these are all stereotypes. Taking this course will open your eyes to the society we live in and shed some light to major issues of social justice our country is going through today.

    Course highlights:

    My personal favorite topic was on Nuclear Families. If you don't know what this is, they are they stereotypical families that the government highly encourages (you will learn more about this in the course). But it sheds light to not only this but topics on domestic violence, on rape culture, the LGBT movement etc. Every aspect of this course is something I feel everyone should be educated on.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you do the readings and show up to class you should be golden. Can't even tell you to study for quizzes because there are none. Aside from the midterm and the final, the other major grade is an essay that you have to write based on an event based on feminism that you have to attend. It is all very easy, and the readings are not even hard, they are extremely interesting and a quick read.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will allow students to learn about the world and how it is affected by power and oppression. It will also allow students to become more aware of diversity issues relating to our identities and backgrounds.

    Course highlights:

    There are many class discussions throughout the year that will give students a better understanding of how privilege and oppression affects individuals of different backgrounds. These class discussions may also alter one's opinions or beliefs on society on a personal, local, and even global level.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this class, a major portion of the final grade will be based on essays and exams. In order to receive a good grade, attend office hours. Professor Jackson is very helpful, and will look over your essays to see which improvements to make, and what to study. Professor Jackson also dedicates a class for reviewing what will be covered on the exam, make sure to attend this class in order to study effectively.
