    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was social and political ranting with some sociology here and there. This is a subject is fairly new to science and it's open to interpretation. This means that the teacher will push views on the students but also that students can form their own understanding before reading/watching anything. It's one of those "you're only wrong if you don't defend your stance" classes

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there's a science called Sociology and important people have studied it. You try to answer questions about human behavior, poverty, crime and ethnicity by just thinking about it and taking a guess. The study is made easier by allowing you to choose a perspective (a set of assumptions) that make your opinions easier to rationalize.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The teacher insists that you read the textbook, read the whole assigned book, watch documentaries... not necessary. Due to the controversial nature of the course, the teacher rants a lot. There's enough free time in the class to pull out a cell phone and fact check the teacher and do deep research into tangentially related topics that come up. Tests are really based on how confident you are not how well you know exact details. Skim the textbook before tests for the names of scientists and theories. Other questions can be answered by recalling life experience (everyone has experience with this stuff, no one lives in a bubble)

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is very passionate about her work and clearly loves what she does. She takes her time to explain why society is what it is. I would highly recommend to taker her class as an introduction to sociology,

    Course highlights:

    Learning about Marx and Weber where the highlights of the course. They explained why people do what they do and why money runs the world. How the more wealth, power, and prestige you have the higher you are on the social hierarchy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook that is the most important part. If you read the textbook and outline it you will do great in the class. You will concepts quicker and understand them.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He was amazing. He made you genuinely interested in the subject and applied it so well to the real world that it made you feel like it mattered.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course had to be in the beginning of the class when we would present something from the news and we would go through each one presenting the sociological implications that were presented in each of the topics.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and use the website that is accompanied with the textbook.
