    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it for those interested in a related field or for someone looking to learn important perspectives on everyday life. My major is not related to sociology at all, but it was surely an interesting course to take - especially at such a controversial time in society. Many sensitive topics were discussed which made it more intriguing, but you have to go in with an open mind and heart.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new sociological standpoint that I never had prior on a variety of topics that society is dealing with currently, ranging anywhere from racism to adoption, abortion to immigration, sexuality to economy. It was a wide-ranging, versatile course that provides "real-life" information. This is not one of those courses that you memorize useless material just to get you through the next exam. It is meaningful information with life lessons that gave me new perspectives, opinions, and optimism.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I got a 4.0 in the class, so my strategies seemed to work, although I questioned myself all the time. I read the Schaefer book very closely, taking note of the vocab and the chapter review. The chapter reviews were helpful if you didn't have time to read the entire chapter, but try to go back through it when you do get the chance. The Gilbert book was never overly helpful to me. I read the chapter summaries of each chapter and took note of the vocab words but I never spent too much time with that book. Tests and pop quizzes were TOUGH, but there are homework, recitation, and every extra credit opportunities to help your grade out.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The subject matter is very intriguing, and the lectures focus heavily on a mixture of current events and historical statistics. Dr. Broman easily keeps the lecture interesting, but progress tends to be slow. Though I love the subject material, I find that the lectures/notes presented RARELY correlate with the actual quiz/test material. Reading the book and taking your own notes will prove to be more beneficial, as I found that studying class notes was not helpful at all. The class average is very low, in large part due to this.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely enjoyed the lecture material, because we focused on current events. We also debunked many common misconceptions and learned things that our high school teachers may have lied about. The class truly exposes the mediocrity of modern society, as we delve into stratification and unequality.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will not pass the class if you do not read the book, thoroughly. I guarantee it. Take notes, ask questions, read the book and take notes from there as well. Just skimming a chapter will not suffice. Use Quizlet to help learn vocabulary; there are pre-made sets for the class. Also, don't copy the notes down word for word; it's a waste of time and poor note-taking technique. Just note what you need, not every word is necessary.
