    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys learning about social inequalities and human behavior based on gender and sex.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher was brilliant on the subject who has been teaching for years. I learned about social issues regarding sexuality and gender equality. The highlights were learning in a safe environment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will need the syllabus and the book. You need to read the book and have time to process it before taking the tests. You also need to show up for class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Men and Masculinities by Professor Ron Matson is perhaps the greatest course I've taken at Wichita State University. Watson is such an intelligent, insightful, knowledgeable, well-rounded professor. He allows for class discussion and helps his students converse and talk about both sides of the discussion. There were a handful of students who disliked the social aspects and feministic viewpoints of this class, which is to be expected. Although it was given in a huge lecture hall, I felt very connected in this course. That has never happened to me even in a smaller classroom. I even enjoyed the text Matson wrote specifically for his course. Everything about this course was eyeopening, and I honestly would love to take it again. If you allow yourself to connect and open your eyes, Matson brings to light a new perspective to those who are willing! Lastly, the readings for the tests were easily-read. The notes for class (which comes with the course textbook) helped me a lot to learn IN CLASS as he was lecturing. I learned so much in this course!

    Course highlights:

    Sociology studies isn't for most people. I thought I was one of those people, but this course proved otherwise. I learned about hegemonic masculinity, patriarchal societies, and how gender and culture rules our society. We are people trapped by social media and "gender." This course helped me see the perspectives of feminism and masculinities that create our societal rules. I am not bound by my gender, I am whoever I please to be!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class! If you don't want to learn, then don't take the course. Don't distract others who truly care about the subject at hand because Matson will ask you to leave. He wholeheartedly wants you to take something positive away from this course. He loves teaching and only wishes that you'll commit to learning as much as he wishes to help teach things to you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Everyone should be required to take this course. Men and Masculinities breaks down the components of roles, stereotypes, discrimination, and abuse involving males in our world both past and present. Having an understanding and informed perspective about men and evolving tremendously helps the forward progression of untangling the web the past has created.

    Course highlights:

    Growing up I was shown that men and women have certain roles and that men run the world basically. After taking Men and Masculinities I gained reassurance in what my mind and heart were already telling me which was that yes while men may be naturally stronger than women in most cases, this doesn't mean that they are better, deserve more or are perfect. Men are complex just as women are complex. What the world teaches us about women and emotions, hormones, self-esteem, etc men have just as much trouble with.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to dig deeper and widen your perspectives then Men and Masculinities will enlighten you I'm sure. There was so much compelling factual information on topics, events, research and much more that it kept me very interested. It did not teach me anything I already knew for sure.
