    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because I feel like it's pertinent for every student to learn how to make social connections. This class teaches you how to make connections with people that you would've thought that you had nothing in common with and it teacher you how to converse with others and be more open minded to new cultures and viewpoints.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to be able to hold a conversation with someone who seemingly had nothing in common with me and how to step out of myself and view things from other people's perspective.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY! Although this is seemingly a common sense course there's a lot of material presented to you that you definitely have to study. Applying the terms to your everyday life makes them easier to remember.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great course for those that need sociology for their major or are very interested in sociology, but the tests in class are much more difficult than the homework and the in class work, and I felt somewhat unprepared for the first exam. It requires a lot of at-home studying, but overall it is a good course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned quite a bit about the functioning of society, as well as where my views of society fall compared to other sociologists. I also learned a lot about societal debates and issues, as well as social networking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes on your textbook. Highlight, rewrite, whatever you do, make sure you take notes on your textbook. Record major ideas and new vocabulary words, it could mean the difference between passing and failing your exams.
