Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I definitely would recommend this course to anyone who is even considering sociology or even someone who just wants to learn more about it. I came into this class knowing very little about sociology and unsure of how interesting it would be but it ended up being one of the most interesting and thought-provoking classes I have ever taken. Professor Hunter really knows what he is talking about and is so passionate about sociology that he will likely instill a similar passion in you!
This course really taught me how to see things from another angle and look at things objectively. We got to talk about what really shapes a person's character and what effects how a person acts in front of different people. I found it really interesting that we subconsciously create different versions of ourselves in front of different people of groups of people. He also did many demonstrations to engage the class, like social experiments, which made the lecture much more enjoyable. Highly recommend this class! Never a dull moment!

Advice for students:
Honestly, the best piece of advice is to just show up to lecture, pay attention, and take good notes. Most of what I needed to know came from lecture and when it comes to important information, he will repeat it and write it on the board so it's easy to write down everything. Aside from lecture, you really just need to skim the readings in case of a couple questions on the tests, but like I said, a majority of the information comes from lecture. Just make sure that in the essays on the tests, you explain thoroughly and carefully; don't leave out details.
