    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wilson was someone who loved what he taught and it could be seen in the way he interacted with his students. He made sure that we knew when he was available outside of class. Also he let us use cheat sheets on exams.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about Why humans behave in certain ways was very interesting. There are many factors that determine our behavior which I did not know about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every class and read the textbook.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to know how much society and the aspects that compile up society have a significant impact on human behavior and it's cool to see that society all these years has shaped an individual's thinking.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the few things that I learned in this course that intrigued me were the dependency theory where poor countries remain poor because they are exploited by wealthy countries and it's just mind boggling that there are theories like such that suppresses individuals from economic growth and also I learned that through socialization which is process in which children develop an awareness of social norms and values and through that awareness, we as individuals develop our identity, which again is interesting, in how society molds us to who we are in a sense.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the pre-readings, attend the lectures, and actively learn in lecture by doing the clicker questions, and lastly to excel on the exams go over the lecture PowerPoints (which he posts right after class) since key information lies in those slides.
