Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I loved this course because the professor was engaging and the material was fascinating. It challenged me to think about my own biases based on the social context in which I was raised, as well as reconsider what I know to be "true" compared to what I know as "social norms." This course was the reason I decided to become a sociology major.
It was an overview of sociological theory as well as practical looks at the social constructs that affect us most: gender, race, class, the systems and "isms," just to name a few. We watched videos, looked at graphics, and had an awesome text book. Homework was always fun and usually reflective.

Advice for students:
Take the course seriously! You will get so much more out of it if you invest yourself in the material. It affects you because it affects everyone! Learning about the systems, ideologies, and institutions of your society helps you to become a more productive and conscientious contributor to your society.
