    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because you definitely learn about the different institutions in our society and how institutions are so important. There's reading required but you'll understand the material more. There's also a paper where you have to write about a fictional book which is interesting because it's about a small group of people trying to remake society after an apocalypse. It Rotondi is also an engaging lecturer and he's very helpful and approachable!

    Course highlights:

    We all know about the different institutions in our society like education, polity, law, religion, etc. We learned about how those all started and how they became so essential to making society work and function. I feel like this class should be one of the core sociology classes because our society is basically all the institutions we learned about. You realize that everyday you're involved in different institutions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely keep up with reading so that discussions are easier to understand and lectures won't feel so tedious because Rotondi discusses a lot of information in class. He puts up study guides for the midterm and final so look over them before discussion. Definitely go to office hours to get your paper looked at before it's due so you can do the best you can on it! He also doesn't include + or - in the grades which is a reliever.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is very engaging, and makes lectures bearable to listen to. He is very approachable, however the material is a little bit boring.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different types of societies, ranging from hunter and gathering societies, to agrarian societies, to modern post-industrial societies. Lots of readings, and it can get confusing because most of the societies have similar concepts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and make sure you know the difference between the different societies. The test can be a little difficult, so go to office hours if you find it confusing.
