    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was challenging to say the least, however the insight and knowledge that Dr. Stephens has to share is incredible and worth the hard effort it takes to get an A in the class.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was learning about the experience that Dr. Stephens had when he was collecting data and same for our TA. I think it's really interesting to learn about other cultures and I love how both of them and all cultural anthropologists put themselves into other peoples shes and live their lives as best a native would.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed you need to show up to class. It's all lecture based with no online notes and barely any written notes. This can be challenging if you skip class because the tests and paper are specific to what is taught in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was definitely not the easiest introductory course. There were several reading assignments a week and, although there were only four exams and one paper, they were simple multiple choice question exams. Studying was necessary in order to pass, as was reading. However, Dr. Stevens was very fair and would allow us a cheat sheet for in class exams, including the final.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Stevens would often talk about his time in the Peace Corps and the research he had conducted in Africa. This showed that he had first hand knowledge on what he was teaching. Also, he showed many movies which were interesting. Overall, we learned that every society is different yet similar, and that we should not analyze them from our own cultural perspectives, but from their own.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read what Dr. Stevens assigns. Not only does he use it for his lesson plan, but they are always on the exams, which are all written exams, and they are almost always interesting. Also, try to form a study group because anthropology is all about different perspectives. This will enhance your knowledge and make studying for the exams much easier.
