    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it was very interesting and highly engaging. It also involved so many applicable and real world situations, it would be impossible to leave the class and not have learned something. It has helped me to understand society more and more every day, and when political and social discussions are going around, I know and understand how to properly respond and be informed unlike before I took this class.

    Course highlights:

    To me, two of the biggest highlights of the course were discussing the prison system and discussing family systems. Aside from learning about how institutions and systems of oppression work together not only in the U.S., but around the world, specifically things that stuck with me were how although African Americans are over represented in prisons, the majority of prison inmates are Caucasian males. That was exceedingly powerful to me as there is always debate going on about things like this and I now truly understand the stereotyping and oppression that is going on within our criminal justice system.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give is to pay close attention in class and takes notes on real world examples. It is one thing to know all the little definitions, but in a class like this, you truly need to be able to apply the problems and systems to real life scenarios.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Steve is a great professor! He really has a way to connect with his students unlike any other professor I've encountered. His teaching methods are "unorthodox" to say the least, but very effective! His tests are basically the study guides, attendance isn't necessary, but he knows who comes to class and if you do you have a higher chance to pass. There is a 10 page paper that is the final but it is very easy to do and you have all semester to get it done! Even if you are not a Sociology major I would highly recommend taking this class with Steve.

    Course highlights:

    Steve really has a way with making you remember the material in his own way. He makes you want to come to class!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Talk, talk, talk! He gives participation points to those who talk and those will come in handy. Pay attention in class and write/record what he says! Steve can sometimes go on tangents, but he always will come back on topic if you give him time. Lastly go to office hours! If you feel as he didn't answer something in class, talk to him during office hours. He is a great guy and will do anything for his students. I have developed a real relationship with him outside of class and he will help you out if you need him for anything.
