    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good discussion-oriented class that encompassed all stances of modern globalization issues. It helped me learn a lot about current and past events.

    Course highlights:

    The course not only went into the definition of globalization, but also argued the pros and cons of the process. By the end of the course, students were able to understand global patterns and processes and their interaction with society and develop their own awareness and stances on several different global issues.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the required text in order to fully understand what the professor is discussing. Don't be afraid to express your own opinion, even if it's unpopular.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I LOVED this course; it helped me develop some of the terminology and understanding required to competently engage in global discourse.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about things like cultural relativism, expanded my understanding of intersectional identity and how it connects to the process of globalization, and got to interact with people whose viewpoints differed from mine.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    1.) Read the course materials, EVEN the optional ones! They will expand your understanding of the concepts you learn and you will be able to make real-world connections. 2.) Connect with the people in your class! I wish I had taken more time to get to know more of my classmates, particularly the international students. 3.) Keep up with your geography skills, even after you pass the quizzes. It makes reading comprehension easier, and you'll be better at connecting historical events and their implications/consequences. Also, if you're going into the realm of Global Affairs, you MUST know that Africa is not a country. :)
