    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Sociology is the study of society, and even an introductory course like this will teach you how to open your mind to a broader perspective on the world and how different groups of people function in it. Professor Davis is fun to listen to, genuinely loves teaching this subject, and goes out of his way to make sure everyone grasps what is being discussed. He's a great professor, it's a great subject, and when you put those two things together, great things happen! Easily one of my favorite classes ever - in fact, I enjoyed it so much that I went back the next semester for a more in depth Sociology course to learn more about it.

    Course highlights:

    The things I value most out of what I learned in this course is how to break down stereotypes groups hold against other people, whether those involve race, gender, sexual orientation, age, income, religion, or social status. Another highlight is that Sociology taught me how to step out of my perception of what is right and look through the eyes of someone whose early experiences have lead them to form a very different perspective. Sociology showed me how to evaluate different viewpoints for validity, regardless of whether I agreed with them personally or not. In a world that's becoming more and more diverse every day, this is a valuable skill and is my biggest take-home lesson from the entire class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use the appendix and glossary in the textbook. He gives open book exams, so refer back to the book on every question to make sure you've got them right. Also download the PowerPoint Presentations and use the "Find" tool in Microsoft to help you hunt down passages that talk about specific words or concepts. This will make finding answers for questions on the test much faster and easier.
