    In order to get an A in this class, you have to go to every class. I would also say do not leave studying for last minute.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend the course because it allows you to see history from another perspective. First off, the course is entitled cultures of Latin America, but it was renamed to Doing and Thinking Decoloniality in the Americas. In all, we learned about indigenous people and people of color whose stories were covered and their histories lost through colonialism and capitalism.

    Course highlights:

    Thought this course, I decided to change my major because it allowed me to experience something I did not Know I was so passionate about. The highlights of this course was definitely the professors explanation of history and his commentary over some common stories that are told through history.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    My best advice would be to attend every class, its definitely worth it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it's an very eye opening class it shows how civilizations have developed over hundreds of years and that those same idealistic are still implemented today.

    Course highlights:

    There were many highlights to this course especially learning about decoloniality which is repressing colonialism and how many Latin American did that but colonialism kept coming back. Either through the government, fashion and etc and till this day many of the native populations are fighting colonialism but it is still very influential in the government.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give to any student considering taking this course is to be open to the new information because there is a lot of new information that there will be at once to just be open and accepting always input what you know but don't think what you're learning is wrong because of what you already came in knowing.
