    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is fascinating. Learning about different cultures both modern day and in the past. Professor Hale really challenges you to dig in and learn not the why but also the how of how different societies work

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the term paper. You are given an extensive list for topics but really you get to choose what interest you. I choose Texas Czechs I learned a lot about my heritage.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for test. Professor Hale doesn't review and his test can be difficulty but he grades on the curve.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I probably wouldn't recommend this class, but that doesn't make it an unbearable, awful class by any stretch of imagination. From my experience in this class I would say that unless you have a strong desire to be an anthropologist or have a thriving passion to understand the evolution of mankind you shouldn't take it. I understand that as a freshman and sophomore, elective credits are just as cruel as the required ones are, but electives are meant to be enjoyable and take your mind away from required classes such as english and math that you may not be interested in, but have to take. I struggled with Anthropology because I didn't like it, nor have a interest in it and therefore this became a difficult class for me because I had work harder on and stay focus, resulting in my only "B" for the spring semester. I couldn't blame anyone but myself because I had the mindset that any elective would do, but in all reality my elective classes mattered just as well. I just don't want anyone to make the same mistake that I did. Anthropology can be a fun, productive class if you make it.

    Course highlights:

    Although this class was somewhat insufferable for me, there were some interesting ideas and concepts that I learned. I gained a new perspective on the ideas of supernatural and superstitious. I use to just think that being superstitious was for "crazy" people and that supernatural only existed in the realms of vampires, werewolfs and witches. but that is no longer the case. Religion can tie into both superstitious and supernatural. Most people tend to separate them, but really they are the same thing. Another concept that I learned was that language and different types of dialect can stem from people's surroundings. We read an article about West Africa and in that article different types of dialect were created based on the amount of rainfall that a particular area received. And though these were my two favorite concepts that I learned there was so much more to take away from this class!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please don't think that this class is going to be one of those easy A classes where you can just show up, not pay any attention and somehow miraculously achieve an A. Whether you have the endeavor to be an anthropologist or not, you need to take the time out to understand each and every lecture and apply that lecture to your life and give it meaning. Only then, will you have the power to truly learn the concepts, get the grade that you want and walk away knowing new ideas that can now be applied to the real world.
