    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Introduction to Sociology is a very interesting and fun class. It allows students to step back and analyze human interactions in a completely different way. This class is definitely something everyone should take at least once in their lifetime because it really shows a side to society that no one ever thinks about. The teacher is also very open and welcoming which makes the classroom atmosphere more fun. Everyone likes to participate and oppressed when they share their opinions.

    Course highlights:

    When I first chose to take this class, I had no idea what Sociology even was and I was taking it for the sake of "getting a college experience." However, the more I learned about the subject, the more I was interested in it. Sociology is the study of the functions of human society. One chapter that stood out the most was about social networks with strong and weak ties, and how they help people in the long run. Basically, strong ties are close relationships you build: your mom, your dad, you best friend, etc. Weak ties are relationships you create through your strong ties or just people you are acquainted with. What stood out about this section was when I realized how many people I knew through my strong ties. Furthermore, my professor explained that if one is maintaining a good relationship with their strong ties, then they are automatically maintaining a good relationship with their weak ties. People's social networks allow them to have access to various contacts that could potentially help them in their careers. This topic is one of the many that have really made me step back and think about my life and all of things I do not really pay attention to.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always pay attention in class because everything that is discussed during lecture classes will show up on the tests. Furthermore, if you listen and review the teachers notes every class you will only have to review topics before tests rather than learning the material the day of the test.
