    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I believe Introduction to Sociology should be required for all degree plans due to the fact that it really does give students a new perspective on everything we know. It taught us how we learn right from wrong through socialization. It also let us know why racists and even bigots exist through socialization. The class provides explanations for why we are the way we are, among teaching us more about life than any other class I have ever been part of. Also, because Professor Ford-Robertson is a FANTASTIC professor. It was hard not to want to attend every lecture.

    Course highlights:

    I will take with me always the lessons on minorities as well as gender. It really gave me some very blunt facts about the way everyone is raised as well as the haunting reality of minority women in the workplace. Professor Ford-Robertson may not have been a minority, but she has definitely inspired everyone in that class to be confident as well as strong when it comes to things like the glass-ceiling for women in the workplace. The main highlight of this course was the empowerment we all felt as a result of knowing the harsh realities that are societal norms and how those norms are created.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students taking this course to always remember to keep an open mind. Not everything we grow up knowing is what everyone always grows up learning. I would tell them to not take offense to anything, but to remember that there are always multiple sides on every situation in the world. This course is only meant to introduce us to all of the different perspectives out there and to show us that every society has their own set of norms.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Class can be kind of boring since it is not in detail. Many sociology majors know there are a lot of things to be discussed under Sociology. But since you have to take it, Professor Barrie does a good job of getting students involved.

    Course highlights:

    Class engagement. Discussion is a major part of Sociology. Being told that you are thinking and talking like a Sociologist in an intro course is pretty rewarding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. You don't have much of a choice anyway. For students who don't have to, this course helps provide insight as things are not always as they seem. It helps the average person try and see things outside of themselves.
