    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course and professor to students because Dr. Spring is very passionate about his field of study. His lectures aren't notes or books based, it's based solely on his knowledge of sociology and how he relates it back to modern society. Dr. Spring's lectures are very open and rigorous in that the individual should attend to his lectures and participate in them. What makes his lectures unique is that there's no structure or framework to it. That allows flexibility and opportunities to talk about practical, modern sociology rather than throwing textbook terms at his students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the class discussions. Dr. Spring focuses his material and course on the modern world of 2017. He relates a lot of the discussion on multiple sources (such as economy, psychology, and history) to sociology. Since sociology is a very broad course, he incorporates those elements in our class discussions to further understand it. I learned about the institutions in society that impacts our psychological thinking. He talks about socioeconomic factors and how modern society is compartmentalized based on an individual's socioeconomic status. Since I am a psychology major, sociology incorporates a lot of psychology into its course content. They correlate in that an individual's way of cognitive thinking and individual identities eventually make up the collective society, which is where sociology steps in. It analyzes the collective thinking and interactions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to take good lecture notes, pay attention in class, and don't text in class because that's his pet peeve. His tests are somewhat easy, but most of the content comes from his lectures or the textbook. Balance your studying between referring to the textbook and the lecture notes because they're related. Come into class with an open mind and be prepared to be educated because his lectures are actually practical.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, especially with Doctor Pryor, because of the interesting subject matter, as well as her passion for the material. There will never be a boring day in her class!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included a non-cumulative final, interesting case studies to analyze, and the class discussions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You'd definitely need to do the reading and pay attention in class to understand everything. Also take the practice exams on MySocLab because they are very similar to the actual exam.
