    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches you about people, how we interact with each other and helps us view it with different perspectives. The topics go from families to social movements, political topics to human behavior.

    Course highlights:

    I learn lots of facts that will help me in debates. There is so much information that changes your perspective on how people see each other, or why we act the way we do. The information ranges from theological advice/thoughts to recent statistics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your textbook! All the information is there. In this course we used online homework that went with the textbook.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course outlines society and social groups as they are and not how they wish to be. There are connections between the book terms and the real world. I think this course is just as important as any government, history, or economics course because students learn the basics of social and political structures, the norms of our society, different religions, and the different angles on current topics by the schools of sociology.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the family is one the social institutions. Social institutions are always changing and the family structure is a good example of that. In the past, a typical family in the United States consisted of a husband, wife, and kids living under one roof. Now we have so many more types that there doesn't seem to be a general or most abundant type. For example, the amount of same same-sex couples is increasing as more states allow them to marry legally. There are many children living in the same home of parents who never married (cohabitation) or living with step-parents. Another trend in families is working mothers who add to the household income. This social institution can be used to learn how society has changed and to compare similarities and differences of other societes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best thing to do to understand this course is to apply text-to-world comparisons. The class is all about human social interaction which is what everyone engages in everyday. Flash cards are great, however watching the news, following politics, watching movies related to the topics you're learning about, and even looking at the behaviors of you and your peers will help put a greater definition on the terms. You can learn more than to just memorize.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Interesting to learn about how others live their lives, and how society and morals effect each person differently.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a knowledge of realization that people are treated based on their social class, skin color, religion and many other factors that may, or may not, be of their choice. I learned that branching out of your own comfort zone, will humble you.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy what you are being taught. Go into this class with an open mind. Discover how people may live so differently than the way that you do. And if you can, travel, and leave your own comforts at home, while you involve yourself in a different culture and way of life.
