    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it teaches you more about society and why you are the way you are, as well as act the way you act. Everything you do is for a reason and I thought the things we got to do in this class were interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights of the course were the projects we got to do, we watched different TV shows and learned how it applied to Sociology, as well as going to public places to break folkways.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say take this class seriously and don't slack off, actually apply yourself in the class and relate to it so you get a better understanding of the material. If you need help, go to your professor or teacher, he or she is so willing to help you understand better and maybe touch base on something that you are having a hard time with.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Stanford is a very relatable teacher and helps the students thoroughly understand and appreciate the course. The professor incorporates current events into the lectures to help students relate. Forces classes to engage in conversation about controversial topics.

    Course highlights:

    This course helped me become a better observer. I was able to easily grasp social situations and interpret what was going on. This class helped me realize why certain reactions are involuntary and different patterns that occur in certain social events such as cheering for a game or booing a performer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In terms of advice for students considering this course i would say prepare yourself with knowledge of the news to be able to participate in class. Study for the exams at least a week prior to get an advantage. Participate in all class activities to get on the professor's good side.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Sociology is a very interesting course and it entails everything that goes on around you. It is basically understanding your society, how people engage in one another and how these communications and bonds we create affect our society and our views on society. It opens the floor to so many questions and its one of the courses whereby you feel connected and engaged.

    Course highlights:

    I observed that sociologists always consider different views in analyzing a problem. This sometimes makes it hard for a conclusion to reached leaving the problem as a vague one. Depending on your beliefs you may see a condition as a social problem while others with varied belief may not. so your question may be then how do you define a condition as a social problem? A condition becomes a social problem if an influential group defines it as threatening its norms, when the condition affects a large group of people and when collective action can be used. This may be the same with deviance which is a behavior that violates an important group's norm. A behavior is considered deviant by those who think a person's behavior is against their values and norms. Therefore we can say that deviance is in the eyes of the beholder like beauty.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to think outside of the box, don't let the reading the book be your limit for explanation and evidence, instead apply it to your daily life which involves your social life. Instead of reading to understand, read to associate with the world around you then it will be much easier to comprehend and remember.
