    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Many students recommend so much of the other Intro to Sociology professor, but I feel Professor Tucker is underrated. Admittedly, I don't think he's a terrific speaker so sometimes it's easy to become distracted from what he is saying, but otherwise he's really nice and smart professor with good content.

    Course highlights:

    Unlike most introductory course, we didn't use a textbook. All the readings were academic books or articles written by prominent sociologists. But I didn't use a single penny on books because everything could be borrowed from the library or uploaded onto Moodle. We learned about social inequality in race, class, gender, media regarding "success". I think it was slightly more difficult because of the choice in books, but we learned much more because of that.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The grades are based upon two short essays and two exams (midterm and final). The essays are pretty straightforward; you pick one question out of several options and respond. But the professor grades a little harshly on the first essay, so be more attentive of that. The exams are pretty convenient in that the professor gives you a list of questions a week prior to the day of the exam, and out of that list he picks several to put on the exam. Out of those several, you just have to pick 2 (midterm) or 3 (final) to write on. I'd advice to write out the answer to all the questions in advance and memorize them. There isn't any participation grade by the way.
