    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There is a saying when it comes to sociology. It goes "Don't study Sociology if you want to be happy." Why? "It's because you will become aware of a lot of societal problems and you will find yourself always questioning the things we do and take for granted." It's a bit of a mouthful but it holds true, nevertheless. Since I've finished the class, I've found myself questioning so many things that I'd rather not. Things such as gender issues, racial inequality and an incredible amount of other themes that were once normal to me are now glaringly obvious.

    Course highlights:

    Over the course of this class, I have become increasingly negative or pessimistic of the world and people-in-general to the point it's almost depressing. When I try to offer sociological explanations for events or try to see them from a more critical point of view I am ignored. I've come to the understanding that people don't like the idea that we have some responsibility for issues like this. I feel there's a lot of truth or at least insight from the Sociological way of looking at things, but people seem to roll their eyes whenever it gets mentioned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start early! Seriously, when you get told about that test or paper begin that night. Do a little bit each day and then a quick review two days before. I also find pictures help me, so try drawing pictures on flash cards. Study regularly, look to understand something and commit it to long term memory. The only way you will be able to do this is to study it regularly. 5-6 times minimum, it might just be refreshing your memory after the first time but you need to do it. I use conceptual maps in order to make regularly studying something much much faster and easier. This is vastly superior to linear walls of text or masses of notes. One of the many reasons I would not recommend a laptop for note taking, paper is more flexible and more reliable. Have a set number of hours per week and a rough routine, for example at university you want to be dedicating minimum 40 hours a week to study for top marks. Fit it around your life but set some hours you'll study to most of the time.

    Take it, you won't regret it. I'm sure you will have great experience. I will learn how to work on online class, read the textbook, do the quizzes, assignments and post your thoughts on discussion board on your own.
