    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very dry. The material is difficult to digest because it is mostly abstract and length. I suggest maybe looking into another course instead of 5his one. The material is not interesting for science, engineering, or technology in my opinion (not to say it’s irrelevant in some social aspect).

    Course highlights:

    You’ll have continuous readings, 2 midterms, and a final take-home essay. You don’t learn much besides the relation in science and technology to sociology and other liberal arts fields like philosophy or anthropology. The class is mostly lecture and the professor might ask question like who did the reading or questions regarding the topic. Most people don’t seem to do the reading, which will be hell if you wait till the last minute when the midterm comes and you have to catch up on reading. I easily like that for the midterms, you get 5 questions in advance in order to prepare a response for each. The professor then picked 2 and you have to write a response in each.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading as often as possible and write responses for the midterm questions to help you study. The professor said she didn’t allow audio records but I suggest you do it anyway since you never know if you might need it (I didn’t need them since it personally helps me best to just read the material). The lecture will just be reiterating the material from the reading. I took the class for the Engineering complementary course requirements but you do have the option to take something else instead of this class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Because the professor ensures to keep her lessons plans as current and interesting as possible, even though the material provided is quite difficult to comprehend, she incorporates technology in all her lesson plans, ensures students use social media to interact with students inside the class, which a lot of University professors fail to consider.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were the interesting lessons about great philosophers that were discussed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your readings, and take notes in the class because it will show up on the tests!
