Also, we talked about Naomi Klein, a woman who is investigating the cause of global warming which might be capitalism. She talks about how people don't want to see whats really happening outside to our environment and how we will need a huge social moment to defeat global warming and change our economy system.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class connects to every thing we do, and all the people we encounter on a day to day basis. This class discusses things we do as a society, and the reasons why we do it. Students will be able to have a better understanding of modern culture, and social structures, and the influence they have on a person. Furthermore, students will be able to understand why the decisions we make are impacted by the social structures placed on us. Furthermore, students will learn how these social structures are correlated to the Sociological imagination, as Karl Marx says.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the Sociological imagination and how there are private troubles and public issues, and many times, private troubles and public issues correlate with one another. We learned about deviance and social control. Deviance is important because it institutes social structures, but social structures do not always remain the same. Many times, Social structures have negative impacts. Gender is different from Sex, Sex is all biological/chromosomal, whereas Gender is formed through Social interactions. Media pushes this sexual objectification, where woman and men become dehumanized, and the only thing that is valued is their body.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, attendance truly matters. Read all the course material, because it is discussed during lectures. If you have a question, feel free to email or ask the professor in person. The professor is extremely passionate about the subject and wants to see you strive and succeed. Furthermore, I find that taking notes and going over the notes after class is extremely beneficial. Creating flashcards will help a student understand and memorize the sociological terms.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    He really seems to enjoy what he teaches and makes the class fun. This is so refreshing especially because you find yourself looking forward to the class.

    Course highlights:

    When I started my freshman year I was a biology major but soon after I realized that biology was not something I would enjoy and being in this class made me realize that this would be something I could actually see myself doing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up to class. It is not hard to get a good grade if you are physically there and just listen and enjoy it.
