    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Avella is an honest human being and will say it how it is. The class gave me a whole new perspective on the world and opened my eyes. The original documentations were far more interesting to read than a textbook.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class would be the discussion because you get to hear all of the other students' interpretations and expand upon your own ideas.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice that I would give is to read everything so that you thoroughly understand all of the material. It is essential for understanding the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course for anyone who is curious of how society functions as well how groups of people think.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was being able to make executive decisions on how to handle scenarios, through observations and key items, when it came to assignments. Having critical thinking skills not only helps me with school work but with daily life responsibilities.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Besides always needing to read the material, approach this course with an open mind. This course, while based the study of groups of people, is sorta design to tackle all forms of prejudice and stereotypes between groups of people, because it exposes students to learn about different cultures and understand their situation.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is the best I have ever had. He explains things well and includes the students in the lectures. I still think about everything this class has taught me and how it applies to my life. We had a HUGE discussion on race and how everyone is really racist they just won't admit it, AND IT IS TOTALLY TRUE. I go through life every day hearing racist, derogatory terms and the first thing that comes to mind is that class. SOC&101 with Professor Douglas Avella was the highlight of my day, every day, and when he got sick and class was cancelled I almost cried because I loved that class so much.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was defiantly the gender studies week. We talked about sterotypes and got into many heated discussions-I didn't know it was possible to talk about "the blowjob" and how it makes woman feel powerful WHILE making men feel powerful for 3 class hours, but we did it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your work. As long as you do the work in the class you will get an A. For the discussion posts, it is a lot of reading but he doesn't make you understand it. He knows it is hard readings and hard to understand, as long as you write your thought on what you think of the reading he doesn't care because he talks about what it means in class.
