    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor of this class, Cristi Sporl, was excited about her subject. She used current situations and relevant topics to engage her students. She was also the most unjudgemental professor I've had to date. She accepted every comment and answered every question with the same tone of respect and consideration. She led the classroom with dignity and intelligence.

    Course highlights:

    This class was a general overview of Sociology, but coming in with no prior knowledge of this subject, I left feeling enlightened. This course taught and reenforced some negative and positive ideas about our culture and the people in it. This course is not for the close minded. Racism, sexism, homophobia, and domestic violence are a few of the main issues you will discuss in this class. I learned just how much of what we do is taught or learned by our social institutions and constructions. It's fantastic and exhilarating seeing the world from a cultural relative view point as opposed to a ethnocentric one.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, take notes and pay attention. Also don't be afraid to get involved with the discussion! Sure, these topics can be considered "controversial" but how will you ever apply your education and change the world if you can't begin somewhere as safe as a classroom? The more you devote to this class, the more you receive.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was very informative and intriguing. If you're interested in human behaviour and society, then this is the course for you. The teacher also has a lot of compassion for what she does as a sociologist and a teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot more about the society that I live in, including why people do things they do. I can now identify some motivations that people have, and it actually makes it a little fun to do people watching. I walked out of the course with a more open mind to the world I live in, as I now realize that even though people can be radically different, we all want the same things. Overall, it was a super insightful class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to you is to read the book and the powerpoint notes. The tests are based off of those two key factors, and a lot of the powerpoints are based off of the text in the book. Also, keeping track of vocabulary words can also help your success.
