    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Babin is an excellent professor. He is truly passionate about the field of sociology and is actively invested in the sociological community, with research work and field studies. The way he teaches the class is evidence enough that it is something important to him and his enthusiasm will make sociology important to you as well. Admittedly, the class does move quickly - there are many chapters to cover and not a lot of time to do it in. He expects college-level work to be done in a college classroom and will constantly challenge your perspective on many different topics. But if sociology is a field you care about, or, you genuinely want a good professor for an intro-level course, I would not hesitate to sign up for his class.

    Course highlights:

    This class really helped to develop my critical thinking skills. As this is a sociology class, you're going to deal a lot with the way that society works and things that you once believed to be inherently true and the world around you will actually be proven false. I learned how to better form opinions for myself and truly appreciate nuance in all situations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The textbook isn't necessary in class but it will be for the quizzes. For a few of our classes, our attendance was based upon our participation. While, like most classes, it is what you make of it, don't expect to simply sleep through his lessons.
