    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it was a nice introduction to college as a freshman. It was not a difficult class.

    Course highlights:

    It was a mix of english and environmental/community studies.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    It is very time consuming and also sort of abstract. Its not clear what the overall objective is.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Narratives of Identity is an interdisciplinary course that discusses topics such as race/ethnicity, homosexuality, immigration, classism and its intersectionality. This course is a student intensive class and requires critical thinking and engagement. There are multitude of learning environments to assist in developing your learning experience which include lectures, seminar style environments, panels and field trips into the nation's capital, Washington DC. This course requires 9 to 12 hours a week, however accounts for 6 credits. The allocated hours in the course are not fixated, as you may exceed 6 hours a week for attendance alone. It is important to be prepared for intensive readings, engagement and assignments designed to gauge your understanding in relation to your personal experiences.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was a trip taken to the Church of the Pilgrim in Washington DC, where we were introduced to a panel of individuals who had previously been homeless. We were also introduced to the program Coalition for the Homeless. Although, we encounter a number of homeless people in our day-to-day life, we often forget the human aspect, or the narrative behind those individuals and that could be us. This panel illuminated circumstances that drive individuals into the state of homelessness, which reinforced discussions on race/ethnicity, homosexuality and classism and advocated for change in our society.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ensure to keep up with your readings which will make class discussion more fruitful and writing more engaging. It would be also beneficial to independently look for further readings than that prescribed to reinforce knowledge and provide varying perspectives. The assignments can often be left vague and open to interpretation, ensure to visit your professor for further clarification and requirements to fulfil a satisfactory grade.
