    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    I learned about so many facets of society including power, racism, and sexism.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I appreciated this class a lot because we didn't learn from a textbook. We read a few articles but my favorite parts were the books. We read real ethnographies that helped us to understand what sociology is and what is means to be a sociologist.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the two books we read titled Righteous Dopefiend by Jeffrey Schonberg and Philippe Bourgois. It made me realize that there is so much more to sociology than just the study of people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading! Keep up with it and take notes cause the quizzes will affect your grade. Also for the final paper, you'll need to have read.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly one of my favorite classes so far! Dr. Denny gives study guides out for her tests and always replies very quickly to emails if you need help on any of the assignments. There is a decent amount of reading to do, but if you actually do them and participate in class, you'll do really well on the tests.

    Course highlights:

    This class was your basic introduction to sociology - it covered a lot of broad topics while focusing on the issues that affect us most directly. It was extremely fun and interesting to question what we typically see as "normal" and find that our perceptions of these things are based on what's been taught to us, by society, our parents, our peers, or our teachers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Basically just take notes and do your readings. If you don't do a reading, you will get the main points during the lecture the next day, but she sometimes does pop-quizzes (2 or 3 total) over the readings so just be aware of that. Filling out her study guide for her tests takes a really long time, but if you do them, you can almost definitely make an A.
