This class was tough.
It is important to understand the social relations between people outside of a looking glass perspective such as in the case of the mainstream media. Along with interacting with different people in every day life to form your own personal perspectives on the comings and goings of the vastly different people that populate our land, it's extremely vital that we understand our social history through a historical perspective as well as it can give us objective insight that would otherwise be incapable of our naked eyes to understand.
I've learned that the naked eye is the most inaccurate tool of measurement. Far more accurate is the graph, the survey, the sources for it is they that illuminate to us a picture of the world not as we perceive it through our own lenses of bias and short-sightedness, but rather through the objective standpoint of trends and clinical study. This class brings to light truths that would have otherwise gone ignored by those that have not had the pleasure of attending this class, along with the fortunate result of stripping away the falsities held by those who do attend. This class, in my humble opinion, should be a requirement for all those who are preparing to enter the social fields, or those curious or honest enough to take a good hard look at the state of our society.

Advice for students:
Enter as innocent as a child, yet as cunning as a fox. Enter with the humility of one who knows nothing, and with the ambition of one who seeks to know everything. You will not regret your time in this class for you will learn more truths about our society and the people whom reside in it than you could have ever learned walking in the streets amongst it all.
