    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course has helped me learn more about myself as a woman of color, especially because it focuses on sociology during the spring 2017 course. By helping me understand myself and everything around me, Im able to grow and learn self-respect. The course itself is very challenging because there is a big workload and lots of group projects. It is also hard because all of the classes and workshops are connected and share the same topic from different perspectives.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the race unit. My classmates and I were able to engage in a serious talk about the world and the racial system put in place. We talked about microaggressions, stereotypes, and the omitted history of people of color. Another highlight of this course was being able to indulge in the history of Middle Eastern people, African American people, Latin@ people, and Asian people to be able to understand how the racial system has been set in place in America.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely keep an open mind and always be in class, physically and mentally. After missing one day, it was hard for me to catch up and to learn what was taught that day, especially because this is a very fat-moving curriculum.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it informs you on ideas and topics that society tends to ignore and overlook, making you a more critical thinker overall. It exposes you to the different viewpoints of different peoples throughout the beginnings of American society and History. Not only this, but it helps you understand the reasons behind the meritocracy and the American Dream that has been so widely commercialized but not available to all people due to their differences in race, religion, and gender.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about the systematic oppression of Native Americans and Blacks, as well as the role they played in building America, and how despite this they were denied their opportunity to live and experience the American Dream that others were able to have.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind to what they will teach in this course, but also think for yourself and see how these topics can apply to yourself and your family as a whole. Also think about how what you are told affects the groups of people in society today.
