    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who prefers lecture style classes. Personally, lectures are my favorite because I am fed information, and I can retain said information very well.

    Course highlights:

    The most notable material I took from the course was on the topics of the way people think based off of a group mentality or individual approach. Serial killers were some of the best subjects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to what is assigned and when it is due. It is not talked about often, so the responsibility is all on you. Try hard, but not too hard, ya GDI! ;)

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class equal parts depressing and fun. The professor was extremely funny, and did a good job balancing the wickedness of humanity and the good in humanity. You will be required to learn how to look at things objectively. My classmates and I were exposed to a lot of tragedy, and we had to learn to just look at the facts. Most of the people in a Sociology field are very funny people because they had to learn a long time ago how to separate themselves form their work and so they don't let it get to them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to look at things objectively. My professor and I were both Christians (as well as a few others) and she would not take a theistic answer as to why someone would act a certain way. If you believe in a god, this is a good class to take if you want to go into a scientific field because she acknowledges the theistic answer, but will not take it as an explanation, just like the rest of the world will not. I learned about the three main perspectives in Sociology. If you take this class, people will think you are a shrink and can read minds so it can be fun if you want to mess with your friends. In certain discussions, economics comes up frequently, so it is good to be ready for that.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class! You will need to take notes (pen and paper, not laptop/tablet because it usually impresses most professors) and definitively do the reading. The professor frequently asked questions about the reading and/or yesterday's lecture so it's always good to have that on hand. She also called on random people pretty regularly, so again, it's good to have the information either in your head or in your notes. If she asks a question and you don't want to answer/ don't know the answer, look like you are paying attention. Take notes, but don't make direct eye contact while she's looking for someone to call on.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    She is a great teacher that is passionate about Sociology. Sara will grab your interest with many examples and games that engage you, and make you think about how it applies to society. Her quizzes come from the book so reading is necessary, but you will always discuss the chapters in class. The exams are questions from the quizzes, so you have to make sure to study the material. It is overall a very educational course.

    Course highlights:

    One of the big highlights of this course was the social norm experiment. It made me get out of my comfort zone an experiment on how certain things are and aren't acceptable in everyday society. I also did a research paper on how parental assistance in the early elementary stages of school can have a big impact on students later on. It opened my eyes to how many kids don't get the help they need at home and that is how they fall behind. The students that get the help from their parents are the ones who are usually ahead of the learning curve and are more likely to succeed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take your quizzes and study. You can't pass if you don't put in the effort. It is a well laid out course, b but you definitely have to put in the time to get an A.
