    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for students that enjoy learning about development, structure, and functioning of human society.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was when we were taught about the functions of human society. I learned that if it wasn't for the technology and machines we use and operate on a daily bases today life would be harder then it is now.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn and do not joke off, take the course very seriously.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class with Psychology and thought that Psychology would be better at explaining how people think and act, but it rather explained how different body parts being damaged leads to the body functioning in weird ways. I was wrong and found that Sociology was the class that I was looking for. It explains how people are the way their are and how I am the person that I am today. If you want to understand the world then you need to take this class as it provides a reason for many of the world's hardest questions.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how small to large groups of people interact together to form social rules that are taught to our children. There are micro and macro level agents that forms the group to what it is today and determines how it interacts with other groups. These groups may work well with other groups or have such different realities that they are incompatible with each other. The class also looked at how people feel left out of the group and rebel against it. These people either begin to break the social rules constraining their lives or fall into depression and eventually commit suicide as stated by Emile Durkheim. The world needs to accept differences and work to ensure that everyone has a place within it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to do the reading and complete every assignment. If you do the work asked of you then it can be one of the easiest classes ever. If you don't do the work then you can be guaranteed to bomb each test. That goes for any class you take. Finish things as early as you can and fully enjoy the class with the rest of your time. It really is a fun class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has my highest recommendation. The course tests more than memory; it challenges students to learn how to look at life through a sociological perspective. Students can expect to participate in studies, watch relevant media, and engage in civilized debates with classmates.

    Course highlights:

    As cheesy as it sounds, I gained a new perspective from this course. I learned how to apply the sociology concepts taught in class into my everyday interactions with people, as well as received insight into what I want to do career-wise. My favorite part of the course thus far has been the gender studies portion. We learned how gender roles affect both men and women, and how that contributes to a variety of everyday behaviors.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor does not accept late work, so keep up with your assignments. Take thorough notes in class and pay attention to examples, because they will most likely show up on the test.
