    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There are only reasons to recommend this course in my opinion. Particularly because this course covers current topics of interest--race relations, stratification, sexual identity formulation--this course is valuable since students get to discuss and analyze issues through a more philosophical lens.

    Course highlights:

    There were two main highlights of this course. One of the highlights was having students present a chapter of the course textbook to the class. For my presentation, I chose to lead a discussion on the history of stratification in America as it pertains to social class. This activity helped me better understand how undefined social classes are in the United States. The other highlight of this class was providing students with the opportunity to create their own Wikipedia article to detail a topic of their choice through a sociological lens. I chose to focus my Wikipedia article on the sociology of immigration, specifically in the United States during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. From this project, I gained a vast amount of knowledge on how American immigration policy has become more inclusive than exclusive over time, and how the ethnic backgrounds of successive waves of immigrants has changed over the last 30 years.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend students considering this course to be prepared to have their personal opinions on sensitive topics challenged and/or reinforced by the course material. As well as, I would recommend heavily participating in class as class participation is a significant portion of your grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This online course was taken as dual-enrollment while I was in high school. The text was interesting. The teacher gave us projects that were meaningful to the students. The weekly work included comments on a particular subject, and our thoughts were shared and commented on by peers. It was a great learning tool.

    Course highlights:

    That society is built on relationships and that life in general is all about how well you are able to relate to others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    do not wait until the last hour to study the materials and do the online review.
