    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    He was my favorite professor Fall semester. I always looked forward going to Mr. Whitehawk's class. He was so energetic and enthusiastic. He actually is the reason I changed my major to Sociology (I was a Biology major before). His lectures were always interesting and they always made me want to talk about it with my family and friends. I think everyone who need to take a Sociology class at Texas State University needs to have him as a professor.

    Course highlights:

    There were a lot of highlights to his class, like for example, on test days if you had perfect attendance, you qualified for a group exam which usually boosts your grade on the exam. One of the things I learned is that humans do NOT have instincts like we're often taught we do. There's four characteristics that make the structure of an instinct which humans do not have. Everything we say is an "instinct" is usually a learned behavior. *mind blown*

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook for his 5 question quizzes. It's a super easy read, I always found it intriguing. Do your best to attend every class for a possibility of having a group exam, it seriously helps. Read the outlines he provides (that IS your test). Write notes, of course, it helps.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I believe it is important to learn about society. It is important to know controversial issues, opposing viewpoints, and why people interact the way they do.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the importance of culture and how it shapes our ideas of reality. I also learned about how race is a social construct and how it molds our society. I also learned about the advantages and disadvantages of globalization.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise people who are considering this course to be open minded and considerate of some of the sensitive topics that are discussed in this course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you plan on taking a predictable class that follows a steady schedule, this is not the class for you. However, if you wanted to learn a bit about sociology and what sociology is about, this class defiantly helps with that. As long as you do the work and keep and open ear you should do fine in the class.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing that I had learned in that class is the impact that technology had on the Kingdom of Bhutan. The Kingdom of Bhutan is an agricultural society with an actual monarchy that has a zero carbon footprint on the planet. This society lived in relative peace in till the introduction of television and the internet. Now they have grown to be a little more lazier and a little more violent.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, come to class, get to know your table mates, and make sure you do the presentations and the essays that are due. There is also a good chance of you having to remind the teacher on some things, so make sure you keep up to date on the class schedule as well.
