    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn more about the different cultures, religions, and way of life of different societies around the world.

    Course highlights:

    The most important lesson i learned from this course was that in order to effectively study different cultures you have to study these cultures up close, by actually participating in rituals or activities that they perform in their everyday life, and you have to do it with an open mind. You cannot have any previous assumptions about this culture because that will create bias in your study.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you need to have an open mind and participate in the discussion because participation does count in this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for students because it is a fun and interactive class that allows students to learn about different cultures and religions that they might not have even heard of. Professor Mizrach is very knowledgable about the different cultures around the world and he explains to students that rather than to have an ethonocentric view (e.g. Christianity is superior to any other religion) students should be open to all types of religions and to take into consideration the diversity among different cultures. Professor Mizrach also teaches that much of today's society is so ethonocentric that because of our lack of understanding of different religions and cultures is why we have such racial tension today and misunderstanding. It is interesting to see today's hot topic issues being presented in class and how our lack of understanding causes future consequences.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course for me was writing the final exam research paper. I know it sounds crazy and I'm not a fan of research papers or writing, haha :) but Professor Mizrach gives you up to five topics to choose from when writing your exam (given to you on the syllabus first day of class). I choose to write my paper on a specific religion that I had never heard of, I choose the religion of Jainism (a religion I had heard from in the hit CW series "Jane the Virgin" but I didn't really know what it was). After researching Jainism and using the tools that I had learned from this class I learn to accept Jains (followers) views and I had a better understanding of India and their culture/religion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely be prepared to take notes! (specifically on laptops if you are not a fast writer) If you're an auditory learner you can just take a couple of notes on paper and Professor Mizrach usually explains everything on the powerpoint very thoroughly. Make friends in his class just in case you miss a class you can have someone who can send you the notes.
