Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class is well-structured and very helpful if you intend to do sociological research later in life. The entire course is geared to developing research skills and analyzing others' research skills, and have discussions about topics you and your classmates find interesting. I found it very relevant to my Sociology degree.
I learned how to do thorough research. Writing papers hasn't been a problem for me, though the professor was also very helpful with that, but actually performing the research was pretty difficult for me. I learned how to research and implement it into my writing.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Definitely talk to the teacher early about what you want to research for your capstone and get tips for what you need to do. Start early! I re-wrote my capstone the week before it was due and it was awful, start early so you can make changes along the way rather than all at once!
