    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Think of it as a real life Hogwarts, but science centred. You've got six separate liberal arts colleges with their own founders, values, GE requirements, and future goals in mind for their students.The University of California-San Diego is not so much a diverse campus.

    Course highlights:

    They compete a lot, much like houses in Hogwarts, but in the end, we get along really well. The research opportunities are incredible, we own our own beach, the weather's great, and the "socially dead" stereotype is totally wrong.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I am one to believe that things happen for a reason. When I was only given two choices as to where I am going to be spending the next four years of my life, I decided on UCSD overnight. Now entering my final year at this incredible school.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend DOC 1 because personally, this course made me realize the truths about this country and it made me think very critically about everything in this world now.

    Course highlights:

    By taking DOC, I gained the gift of thinking critically and analyzing, and I think that is a very strong skill to apply to almost any situation and I am lucky to have had such a genuine experience during my first year of college in this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend to go to class and really put in work because even though it's a freshmen course, so much ideas can be followed from this course onto other ones.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, specifically with Professor Mariscal because of how well he is able to explain the complex concepts of the class while also incorporating some humor to hold the class's attention. I found DOC 1 to be very interesting because it really provides students with the tools to explain why certain injustices exist within our society and how we can move forward in a way to address and fix these issues. DOC 1 really helps change the way one sees things and has made me really analyze everything from the events I attend to the media I consume and how different issues of social injustices are embedded within every aspect of our society.

    Course highlights:

    I thought one of the most interesting parts of the course was learning about the ways that different groups of immigrants from Europe were treated upon their arrival in the United States. In most of my high school classes before, we would usually focus on how badly immigrants of color were treated, but in this class, we really get a full and comprehensive explanation of how each group from Europe was mistreated, but also able to assimilate into whiteness. I think the most important things I learned from this class were how to articulate the issues I see going on around me in my everyday life and also how to explain to others the reasons why I want to go into government so I can make a difference for communities affected by issues that have plagued our society for hundreds of years.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course, I would highly recommend to make sure you understand the vocabulary and terms being used because they are thrown around a lot and not putting in the time to make sure you understand each term can really hurt you during lecture and when you are trying to write your papers. Also, the most important thing to do is to approach this class with an open mind, especially if you are a politically right-oriented student because many of the concepts and topics are ones that many people I know who are politically right-oriented disagree with. However if you approach the class with an open mind and ready to learn, you could see the ways in which the issues discussed still exist today and how they affect different groups of people.
