    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is unlike any other. Students who truly engage in the course are provided with great opportunities for personal growth. It is expected that students reach far outside of their comfort zone and involve themselves in activities and experiences they may not have otherwise. While initially it may sound scary, by the end of the semester, students are thankful for the experience. The material learned in this course can be academically and ethically challenging, but it is beneficial and serves purpose in everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    Although this course does have two traditional tests in the curriculum, most assignments go beyond the "typical" expectations when it comes to college courses. For example, one project involved the communication with students from Kuwait. For several weeks, we interacted with them via video chats and group chats, learning about their everyday lives. Students were then required to reflect on their experience with an essay. Another interesting requirement for this course was that students had to join an organization that was culturally different than what they identified as. For example, a Christian may have joined a Buddhist organization. Every few weeks, students were required to write short essays on their various experiences with their chosen group or organization. Although these assignments were definitely more time consuming than traditional assignments, students were given the opportunity to learn valuable skills and lessons, which is not something most courses can credit themselves for.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, students must have ample time to dedicate to this course. This course requires in and out of class participation, and students who do not heavily engage themselves are likely to fall behind. Attending class is required, as participation is counted as a grade at the end of the semester. Students who do not attend lectures are not likely to succeed. Teaching assistants are typically the ones grading assignments and are tough when grading. Students must not only submit work on time, but their work must also be above average and show true understanding of the concepts discussed.
