    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course feels applicable and can be interesting, however the social science of Sociology feels soft. Furthermore, this course is very one sided. Any conservative opinion isn't even considered, it is a "blasphemy", and in a higher education environment I find that dangerous.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was when a guest lecturer came in to discuss the issues that have occurred on the U.S- Mexican border. The lecturer outlined the systemic targeting that has occurred, and the injustices that ICE has committed in the name of 'safety'.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not snub this course from the start as something only a 'disgusting liberal' can come up with. There are liberal points that are agreeable and valid, however as a whole it feels one sided. Although, one can get an A fairly easily.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms.Aldaña is an extremely relatable professor who uses her research, professors and experience in order to clearly convey concepts and key facts in her class. Her sociology introduction class teaches you to think critically about past studies. She imparts in you knowledge and concepts that are applicable for the future, whether it be your academics or the society you live in.

    Course highlights:

    Through her teachings you learn alot about social order and why we are prone to do things that we do. The most interesting concept I remember from this course is the concept of Traditional, Inner directed, and Outer directed societies and that the line between these three are constantly blurred. It helped me realize why I like and partake in the things that I do, and become more self aware about my habits and the people I surround myself with.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not skip corners, make sure to read all the articles and books given in class. On the opposite side of things, make sure not to spend too much time trying to memorize and analyze the article or you will not finish the amount of reading given. Understand the key concepts written and make sure to remember who was responsible for them.
