    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Intro to Soc was a very interesting class. Even if you don't plan on pursuing a sociology career I still recommend taking the class. It gives you a very interesting perspective on the people around you, and even yourself and why you act the way you do. It might help you understand why people act certain ways or why society is built the way it is.

    Course highlights:

    Why is society the way it is? This was the general question throughout the entire course. Why are some things acceptable in some countries, but not in others? How does our government effect us? What does race, ethnicity, sex, and gender have to do with how we act or think? Are all questions you're forced to ask yourself throughout the class. From light questions like 'why do men have "rules" when it comes to using a urinal?' to darker or deeper questions like 'why are there school shootings?'. This class teaches you a lot about who you are and who the people around you are and the way they think and act.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading, pay attention, take notes, and try to have fun with it. This class will bore you to tears if you don't try to learn something from it. It's a very interesting class, but the topics move quickly, and if you don't pay attention and finish the assignments, you won't be able to keep up.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I think everyone should take sociology course because it opens your eyes up to things you and society do that you never really noticed. I had a great teacher that allowed us to have multiple in depth conversations with our surrounding peers. It's interesting to see how each person interprets a specific event or example. Along with learning new things about the society we live in, this course also allows you to learn new things about yourself.

    Course highlights:

    There were specific units that really caught my attention. For example, when we started talking about the low, middle, and higher classes, it was interesting because I never knew about the Social Register and how some of the wealthiest people were chosen to be on it. Another thing this class taught me was how many cultures differ, and how the smallest of gestures can be seen differently from diverse cultures. It's little things like these examples that may spark an interest in anyone, it just varies person to person.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the readings, they're actually quite interesting. It wasn't a requirement, but I recommend finishing the readings before class because it will be easier to ask questions during lectures instead of worrying about copying the notes on the powerpoint and then trying to listen to Mr. Van Cleve talk. Having that background knowledge will allow you to follow everything he's saying and help you spark a healthy discussion.
