    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course changed my perspective on society as a whole, and I found the class to be very insightful and interesting. I would recommend it!

    Course highlights:

    I went into this course with low expectations, and came out wonderstruck. I learned a variety of things from the problems of America's healthcare system to what things are socially constructed. and that's not even close to all we learned. Truly a fun class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do the reading, even if you're tired and think it won't matter, I promise it will. Also as long as you participate in discussions, you'll get full points.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Schmitt's notes are usable for the midterms and exam. Plus, it is entertaining sometimes. The textbook is not necessarily needed for studying.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of things from taking this introduction to Sociology course. It helped me understand some of the world's problems and the different theories such as W.I. Thomas Theorem and the functionalism--and I was able to learn and use that to knowledge to use on the course reading: Alexie's Journal.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study important theories and laws for the midterms!

    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.
