    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course for everyone to take because you really learn how society and people work. You learn to be a practical skeptic and to use a fair judgement on how to see the world. You learn that sometimes what you see is not what really is. You learn about different social institutions such as family, education, and religion and how each play out into a person's role or lifestyle. You learn about social change and deviant acts and how they violate social norms. This course is really helpful especially because we live in a society where social change is occurring, where authorities are being questioned, and where deviant acts and social experiments has taken a big part on social media. This course also helps you understand how ethnocentrism, our attitudes, behaviors, and judgement and beliefs play out in our role in society.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning to be a practical skeptic. That our beliefs and emotions shouldn't cloud our judgement on others. In this course we got to do a deviant act project where we had to do and write about a deviant act such as walking backwards. Through the assignment, you learn how people react to acts that violate social norms. You begin to learn how culture, religion, or age might play a factor as to how others react to you. I think it was really insightful to see different behaviors both bad and good to really help you as a person to understand how you can choose the way to react to something you might not find normal in a way that's logical.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give is to take notes and study. There are many terms to remember for this course and the best thing that has helped me was to sit in front of the class, take notes, and to go over them for the exams. Be sure to also take down any examples given for different terms because many of the terms in this course can also be applied to real life situations which makes it easier to learn in this course. Also make sure you do the reading because many of concepts covered in the book are also on the exams.
