Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Child is an amazing professor! He picks wonderful readings and discussion topics that always captivate the class. I am not a sociology major, but had to take this class for a pre-requisite for graduate school. I am so glad I "had" to take it, because it has been my favorite class at BYU. Professor Child is also very open and willing to discuss anything during his office hours. He is very helpful and personable.
The highlights of this course were when Professor Child had us apply the principles that we learned in class to our lives. He had writing assignments that had us pull from our past and analyze it from a sociologists perspective. Because of this application practice, I continue to analyze other experiences, as well as new ones that I encounter.

Advice for students:
Do ALL the readings. Yes there are a lot, but Professor Child does warn you. There have only been two readings that I found dry and boring. All of the other reading assignments have been very intriguing and thought provoking.
