    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course provided a glimpse at some of the most relevant and pressing social issues that our country faces and even that other countries face throughout the world. It was incredibly eye opening to explore these different social issues. Professor Wanlu encouraged critical thinking and provided great supplemental material for each topic we discussed. I would absolutely recommend this course to other students. It would be appropriate for Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors to take.

    Course highlights:

    There are many social issues in the world around us that we neglect to acknowledge and taking this course allowed me to experience a paradigm shift in my thinking and really be more open to the things around me rather than focusing only on what was right in front of me. I learned about a variety of issues; poverty, war, globalization, problems facing the elderly, how advances in technology affect the world, gender and sexuality, problems surrounding our environment, and so much more. With an abundance of issues in our world, this course did a great job of touching on almost every category.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My best advice going in to this course would be to just allow yourself to think outside the box, be open minded, and take advantage of the supplemental material that Professor Wanlu offers. Professor Wanlu does an incredible job of bringing every social topic we discuss to life. She provides relevant and current examples of such problems and allows us to explore them, the potential solutions, and discuss among our peers why we think it is a problem for our country or society. This course was very engaging and the course work is very reasonable. You will also find that the assignments Professor Wanlu has developed are not just to keep you busy, they truly do provide great learning opportunities.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because this course has led me to think about social aspects that I wouldn't have thought of on my own. Through discussions, I have learned new information that has shaped my knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was reading the textbook because the text book was very factual. The course made you think about stuff deeper and in a new perspective. For example, in the aging chapter. I learned that as the baby boomers are aging the life expectancy has increase along with new medical findings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give is to reference rubrics and the syllabus. If there are any questions that cannot be answered contact the professor. If they see an effort they are more willing to help you.
