    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am sure I misspelled his name, but he is without a doubt, one of the best professors I have had thus far. He was so kind and approachable, that you never felt awkward to ask him a question. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the topic of the course, and was eager to provide any additional information you needed.

    Course highlights:

    I really loved his presentations. They were interactive, they kept your attention at nine in the morning, and were very pleasing to the eye. I learned all about sociology. I learned about how it is everything surrounding you that could affect you long-term.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be, to provide above and beyond answers to any homework assignments. They make you stand out to your professor, and help you score extra credit points, which are extremely beneficial if you are not a strong test-taker.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sarah is a fantastic professor. She is extremely throrough in teaching the class. She prepares you for future sociology classes if that is your major. If not, then you get just enough information to satisfy any curiousity in sociology.

    Course highlights:

    This course is simply an introduction. She did not go in depth for anything. It was an overview of a lot of topics we would encounter in sociology. You learn a lot of the vocabulary in the class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read and do the quizzes online. Also, read through your notes everyday. Her tests are not hard if you read your notes and pay attention in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very interesting. Sarah is an excellent professor who wears her passion for social sciences on her sleeve. She is very thorough in her lessons and makes an effort to get to know her students on a personal level.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course for me was learning how advances in technology have impacted our society and social interactions throughout history. For example, the invention of the plow changed the way people harvested food, which in turn changed people's diets. What I learned from this course is that all changes and advancements in life, change and advance people.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you need to pay close attention to the lecture and take good notes. Also, make an effort to get to know Sarah on an individual level. The class size is usually large, so if you don't put yourself out there, you'll be lost in the crowd.
