    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I could not stop listening to him. He probably gave me the best reality check that I could have ever asked for. He keeps up to date with all his information I could not believe a lot of the things he spoke about.

    Course highlights:

    I remember when we talking about health insurance and how important it is for us to have coverage. At the same time he spoke about how most U.S coverages just suck since they do not help cover anything.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to what he has to say, you will want to hear every word of it. He really knows what he is talking about and I can guarantee you he will be more than willing to sit down with some coffee to talk politics.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I think this class is very important, especially when studying social work. While this class was not particularly interesting to me personally, it is important to get the big view on the world.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned a lot about intersectionality. That is how every single action, decision, and thought impacts more than just that person. Your gender, sexuality, race, class, and more determine who you are. All those paths intersect, which is incredible to learn about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Especially if Monica Edwards is your instructor, GO TO CLASS! Her lecture material is exclusive to class each day. She also assigns some class assignments that you are not allowed to do outside of class. It is crucial to attend every class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Edwards is exactly what a sociologist might be and more. Her explanations are not too difficult for the untrained ear, and the real-life applications discussed in the sociological perspective provided new insights for all of the students including myself. The Honors classes at Harper College are set up more in a forum format, which is honestly the most effective one if all of the students are eager to learn and further discuss the field of study. This sociology class was also set in such a format, allowing for much discussion and learning with both the professor and the classmates.

    Course highlights:

    The greatest point of this particular SOC 101 course was that the whole course was centered on the sociological perspective through the lens of food. Although this sounds somewhat strange, the notion that every interaction with food has a sociological background was verified in our studies, as well as our discussions as a class. Dr. Edwards is very amiable, and her classes are fun on top of being informative. Therefore, she incorporated food through the sociological perspective that was efficient and applicable to our own lives.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Any of the Honors classes at Harper College require the student to consistently be on top of any and all of the readings provided by the professor. While this is seemingly applicable to any class in general, the Honors classes create a forum setting that absolutely requires the background knowledge found in the readings assigned for classes. If the teacher is efficient in finding good reads, the acquisition of knowledge will even be an enjoyable time, with the time in discussion with classmates being an even greater time.
