    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course covered material I would not have otherwise come across in a way that felt very engaging. Most of the class was based around discussions, which in a bad/quite group could be frustrating, but in a good group made the class feel interactive and sparked unexpected debates. It is however a lot of writing, if that is a problem for you I would not recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about two spirit people, and gender nonconforming people of other cultures. I also learned of some practices regarding death in other cultures and how to cite work in chicago style papers. The most interesting thing I learned was the ways in which anthropologist gather information from living cultures.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It may seem obvious but start all of your essays early, especially the semester project. While you can, or at least i could, do most of the essays in a day or two the amount of research you need to do for each one makes it quite stressful. She is also very strict about grading papers according to the rubric she hands out, use it to reference back to when you are writing your essays to ensure you don't miss any points.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a good course in general to expand your horizons and learn about other cultures besides our own. It is also a good course to gain practice doing a research paper.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how better to live in a global world. Another thing was how to better objectively assess other cultures and learn how to not be so ethnocentric.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend at least skimming the chapters before a test. Another thing would be to do the research paper in a timely fashion and go over it a few times the week before it's due. You get a whole 2 months to write it so use that time wisely.
