    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great professor, Dr. Flores really wants you to succeed and she and the TA works with you to help you.

    Course highlights:

    This general education course explores the phenomenon of social change in the age of globalization. It moves beyond the commonsense conception of globalization as greater economic and political interdependency to a deeper understanding of power relations in the contemporary world. Substantive topics include: the information revolution, outsourcing to low-wage zones, transnational migration, global governance institutions, neoliberal economic policies, and social movements, among others. In essence, this course will introduce students to theoretical, methodological, and substantive issues in our global society. Students will analyze the globalization of economy, polity, society, and culture; and the debate on the decolonization, development, and “modernization” of the global South (formerly known as the Third World). In addition, they will learn how the sociological categories of class, race, and gender operate on a global scale. Finally, students will learn to evaluate how global processes affect their daily lives.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is mostly general information and common sense. There are some terms to understand and those are in the book. If you read or even skim the chapters you will do well on the test and easily get 90&100% on the quizzes since they are open book. I got the book used for 30$ and you do actually use it so it's purchase is not a waste.

    Course highlights:

    I learned of may problems that the entire world faces and it is troubling. You will watch many documentaries that are often difficult to watch since it are things that are actually occur domestically and globally and it is worrying.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Skim the book, go to class and get the Iclicker points and take your time on the quizzes.
