    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This introduction course taught me how to think rather than what to think. I learned the importance of analyzing all perspectives and arguing for the other side, despite my contrasting beliefs. This solidified what I believed and helped me question that I wasn't so confident in.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course, for me at least, was studying gender when biologically male and female students had to explain the behavior of their gender. For example, the boys asked the girls "Why do you always have to be right?" and the girls had to come up with an explanation! I learned that race and gender is not as black and white as it seems, and the gray area is where I can learn the most from.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and participate in discussions! I learned the most from my peers sharing their perspectives, and other students will have a chance to learn from you too!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is the best course to get the feel of if you really are interested in every aspect of Sociology. Professor Piatt goes over not just the sociology of one subject, but of every subject of life through lectures, notes, projects, and movies. I understood everything quite well and ended up really enjoying her class, even at 8:30 in the morning!

    Course highlights:

    Learning views of sociology from economic, human growth, and social aspects of life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always be ready to give on opinion; whether you think others will like it or not.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because even if you aren't looking to be a sociology major then it is a good course to stimulate your mind. I think it helps open your mind about the operation of the world, and communities around you on a macro and micro level.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about how people think. They are so many opinions, facts and ideas about the world, people, and how our society can have such an affect on us as individuals.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind. There are so many things you can learn about others and yourself by taking this course.
