This class was tough.
This is great for those who have an interest understand social stratification! Before this course I couldn't tell anyone the difference between social class, social status, and political party; now, I'm eager to see the world more critically through these lenses.
I appreciate how much autonomy over the direction of my second and fourth major projects I had. It gave me the freedom to really explore my own understanding of the class major concepts and to consider my bias towards other as far as class, status, and party are concerned, or even where those three ideas intersection with issues like race and gender.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Do a very thorough reading of every material before class. Also, if you feel the workload is too much, tell the professor! He has mentioned several times that he scales back on the workload when the majority of the class seems to suffer or drop the class because of it.. In fact, he even reduced the length of our final paper after our class dropped from 21 students to 12 with a week or two. If you just do those two things, you'll flourish.
