    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone, not just people who attend Spelman because it paints a vivid picture of how our ancestors were dispersed across the world. It also shows us the different cultures we experience today and the treacherous times they have seen are products of patriarchy, and colonialism.

    Course highlights:

    The class lectures were very insightful for me. Growing up, I never learned as much about my own people in school. It was always what they wanted me to learn. The rawness of the lectures that we had helped me to see it from a different viewpoint that I never expected before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read before coming to class. If you don't, you will definitely be lost. Attend office hours as much as possible. Continuously showing forth effort and wanting to engage in deeper conversation is always a plus.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's eye opening and gives you insight to knowledge that you wouldn't receive anywhere else.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the history of Africa that was for a perspective other than the white male. I learned how to think critically and how to formulate coherent thoughts.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Well this course is mandatory for all incoming freshman, so there isn't much to consider. However, I will suggest that you consider what it is that you want to gain from the course. Do you just want to pass or do you want to completely take advantage of it?

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives students more knowledge about their history than what they have been taught in the past.

    Course highlights:

    During the lab part of ADW a lot of hands on activities and critical thinking takes place in order to ensure we understand the material of the reader.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read and take notes before lecture, and then go over notes prior to lab.
