    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the information that this course provides applies to pretty much everyone. In our modern world, where we seek to appreciate every living person and accept our differences, it's important to understand how and why we become different in the first place, whether culturally, linguistically, ideologically, etc. I think that taking cultural anthropology, the study of human cultures and their evolutions, one can academically take the first steps for a more appreciative view of people.

    Course highlights:

    One of the biggest highlights of this course was when we went over gender. It was extremely interesting to realize that the development of different genders other than male and female was not just a Western culture idea. In fact, multiple cultures identify other genders such as how they act, if they marry or give birth, who they marry, and what status they are given at birth. To know that multiple genders exist across the world facilitated my appreciation and understanding of those in the United States who identify as other genders. Another highlight was the anthropologists view of race: That the only race that exists in human culture is the human race. Biologically, we are almost exactly the same, so why place differences in our external appearances that we have no control over?

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to always make sure to read the chapters and extra texts before the lectures and recitations. Not only will it facilitate discussions around the topic, but also allow one to truly think about how they view culture and human societies by themselves rather than just listen to the professor go on and on.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The best class I have ever taken was an "Introduction to Cultural Anthropology" accelerated summer class at the University of Nevada Reno. What made this class so great was the passion, dedication, and personal experience our teacher, Professor Roberts, had in this field. She had lived in some of the countries we studied for years. We learned practical insight into a vast array of cultures, traditions, economic systems, political structures, rights of passage, and ceremonies for death and loss. This teacher forced us out of comfort zones to question what was/is considered "normal," purely because it's what our society has deemed so. This class forced me to dive in and reevaluate how I make decisions, and it encouraged me to be more open minded and change my personal biases and perspectives. I loved this class and this teacher.

    Course highlights:

    The powerpoints and the discussions.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up and be ready to take notes. Doing the readings
