    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the class because of the content. I think it is great to learn about society and the different groups and how they are seen.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the class were getting through the tough discussions like rape and sexuality because those are things that people don't like to talk about and it is important to know the mentality that people carry in order to adhere to their sensitivity. I learned that people need to be sensitive about certain situations and that society is far from being white and black it is filled with a lot of gray areas.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to do as many of the writings as you can, it will help you with your understanding of certain subjects and enlightens you to your own feelings about the content of the class. But over all try to enjoy the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For one of the core classes that you have to take, I would definitely recommend Intro to Sociology with Professor Nicholas Lee. While this was a class that I wasn't interested in when I signed up for it, over the course of the semester Mr. Lee made it a class that I was very interested in attending to contribute in debates and listen to his lectures.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the classes later in the semester when we started getting into topics we could all debate on as a class, rather than just learning about how societies changed from hunter-gatherer to what they are now. It was the discussions about race and gender, where everyone could share their opinion, that were really the highlights of the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that if you are considering this course, make sure that you have the time to read your textbook for a couple of hours after each class, because this class does go through each chapter fast, and you need to know it for the exams. You also need to be able to have another hour or so after each class period to do the extra reading assignments the Professor may give you, because all of that will be on the exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly, this has been my favorite class of the semester! The material has opened my eyes to many different issues in the world and in our society, and it has informed me of the many different opinions that have developed on these issues. Zek Valkyrie is an incredible professor, and he is very engaging with his students, as he is obviously passionate about the material.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely Zek's lectures. While they were lengthy and straight forward, he always included stories or relatable examples to help make the material stick and really mean something to each of us. Also, I love learning about society and people, so learning about how people handle the different issues that have arisen in our society is of great interest to me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take thorough notes! And study them when it comes times to take his tests. Also, pay attention in class, be engaged in the lectures. You definitely won't regret it!
