    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class 100%, not only is the teacher amazing, but it is a very eye opening experience to many sociological views. Not only did I learn more about what exactly is sociology but I also got an in depth look on how people who study sociology think.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned in depth about social control devices and how when using all these devises effectively and efficiently can make it easy to create cognitive dissonance so individuals are more likely to follow you. I have also learned a lot about sex and gender which has opened my eyes on how difficult it may be for others living like that, and has really informed me on many things I was ignorant about with sex and gender.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention and engaged in all the lectures. When you are involved with what the teacher is explaining it makes retaining the information much easier. Also, always take notes, whenever there is something on board write it down, that will help you out so much when trying to remember all the terms and vocabulary.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It takes you out of your comfort zone, which is a good thing. It teaches you to look at the world differently, and think more sociologically at how the world works.

    Course highlights:

    It taught me to be less judging and more understanding, that everyone has grown up with different experiences and has their own lives to lead. The class makes you realize that with different opinions come different backstories, and different views of the world. Although that seems easy to recite, its harder in practice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The textbook is your new best friend, and expect to be uncomfortable. The topics discussed range from the societal structures behind female and male circumcision, to your own privilege (or lack of) as a person.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Chad is an awesome professor. He gets the class involved with what he's talking about, whether it be a class discussion or video, you'll never be bored.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course is that I actually learned useful information and do apply it to my every day life. It has helped me either apply it to my thinking or help me understand what is going on around me. I learned all the basics about sociology and even helped me develop my own ideas about it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always bring a notebook or laptop so you can jot down notes! And keep an opened mind. A lot of the topics discussed are hard to talk about and you need to develop your own thoughts about it. Don't be shy and ask questions. Discuss!
