Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor is a brilliant woman, who really tries to set personal opinions aside in presenting information. She may often talk about controversial topics that make some students uncomfortable, but she is trying to help students to think outside the box, and consider other people options and point of view. Really well taught course. One word of warning: she is a hard grader. Keep up on the homework and assignments. Don't be afraid to visit her in her office. She really is good to work with, but if you fall behind or do sloppy last minute work, your grade will suffer.
This course is brilliant for gaining cultural sensitivity, and understanding the way that cultural conflict could arise. The professor covers a wide variety of topics that are applicable here and now (for example: intercultural marriage, gender rolls, cultural assimilation and so on) This course changed the way I interact with others and my whole perspective of how I think. It is a great course to take if one plans on traveling or ding business with people from outside his own culture.

Advice for students:
Study for the tests! Some of the matierial seems like common sense, but her tests are tricky! Go to her office and study with her if necessary (she is willing to do that) get to class on time, she has a quiz at the beginning of each class period and those add up (also a lot of the quiz questions are also on her tests). Do the readings and keep up on homework!
