    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is more than a class, it is a genuinely eye-opening experience. It is only a semester long but I wish I was able to take it all year. You are introduced to topic of living as a minority in America, what it means to be a minority and how the eight different groups of minorities we studied are similar and different in their own respects. Coming out of this class, you will look at the world differently; even after the first class your arsenal of knowledge will expand greatly.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about the eight different minority groups this class covered: Hispanic Americans, Arab Americans, Jewish Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Women, African Americans, and LGBT. You will learn the unique struggles that each of these groups experience and the ties that bind these vastly different groups together as minorities.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always, always, always do your homework and complete your assignments! Do not throw anything away, especially while you are still on that given unit because in the words of Mr. McDonald, "Everything is fair game for the test."

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It shows different reasons and different ideas and why and how each minority group have to face their own struggle.

    Course highlights:

    The best parts were class discussion over controversial themes. This allowed many to defend their ideas while introducing new ones as well. It would switch between history, trends, current events and some became so in depth, they would take up the entire class,

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Not a hard class if you do the work and pay attention. While some information that you learn can be depressing, it's very interesting and you never feel bummed out for going to the class.
