    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Not only having interesting topics to talk about in class, the professor really makes sure to engage in conversations with the entire class. Being over 500 students, it was a very comfortable environment where each student was ready to give input on the subject and to give examples on how he or she relates. Sociology can emotionally be a tough class when speaking about race, social class, and stereotypes however; Mrs. Simmers made it a very active and fun class to participate in.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you learn about the different social classes and how society judges one based on their class. Another factor society looks at is race and gender. This class does not talk about the history regarding the reason for these judgments but it opens up discussions on how the current society stereotypes citizens based on these physical characteristics. I learned specific terms such as sociological imagination which is connecting one person to society as a whole. Seeing how if one person is affected by something, it will sooner or later start to affect society is an example of sociological imagination.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open to discuss any topic the professor decides to talk about. Many can relate to stereotypes and feminism because it happens daily and participating by giving input is a good way to understand the material even deeper. The professor assigns readings instead of requiring textbooks and although the readings are long, make sure to fully understand them and take notes because the midterms are mostly about the readings and their authors.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    When I first walked into professor Grindal's class I was terrified that it was going to be a hard class because the professor used very sophisticated language that I had a difficult time understanding. It was to my surprise that I actually enjoyed every minute of the class. The class is not difficult and all you need to do is pay attention and do the homework to the bast of your abilities. Try your best and you will succeed!

    Course highlights:

    Since this was a n introductory class on the subject of Sociology, we mostly learned about the founding father's of Sociology and their experiments that helped pave the pay to what we now know as the field of "sociology." One great example is Karl Marx and his theory of class. Marx believed that society consisted of two classes, "the working class" and the "non-working class." Marx said that the working class had to sell their labor to the non-working class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your homework and pay attention. I was able to pass this class with an amazing grade because I always payed attention and asked questions whenever I was confused. If you have any hesitations on the subject matter and are too afraid to ask the professor, pleas ask your TA because they are less intimidating and have also studied the material. Lastly, don't skip class because although the professor has posted the slides online, most of the material on the slides is very open-ended and professor Grindal goes more in depth in class.
