    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Swidler is an excellent lecturer and I promise you will be engaged the whole time. Sociology isn't the most exciting topic but she is so clear and passionate about the subject that you will be surprised.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the theorists of different times like Bourdieu, Weber, Durkheim, and Marx. I developed an understanding of the basic structures of society and how we have grown. I particularly liked studying Marx and his theories on class consciousness and false consciousness.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read a lot and dissecting the theories to understand them.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although the readings are very dense, you will get a clear understanding of the ways that different sociologists see the world and how relevant their ideas are to today's society.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were being able to make connections to how society works today. I was able to learn how to form an opinion on what the different sociologists believed rather than being fully convinced of everything that I read.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow the topics and questions on the syllabus. Make sure you know what topic you're going to be focused on for the week and do the readings with that topic in mind. Be smart with your reading. Pay attention to the headings and always refer back to the question on the syllabus. And of course, don't be afraid to ask questions. Go to office hours, take advantage of tutors, and create a study group.
