    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class. This class isn't too hard, but you will have to work to get an "A". Brewster keeps the class entertaining which isn't too hard to do since the material is interesting itself. Plus you can miss 5 days with no penalty, but be wary of the pop quizzes.

    Course highlights:

    When I finished with this course I really felt like I learned something which isn't common with half of my classes. We watched 4/5 interesting movies in class which was a plus.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE EXTRA CREDIT. There is no reason to skip it and he gives a lot of it. Review for the quizzes. At least skim the readings. And listen in lecture. If one follows all these rules then an "A" is inevitable.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Brewster is extremely engaging and makes the course a personal experience for each student.

    Course highlights:

    This course gives you a worldly perspective and evaluates the complications, trials, and difficulties endured by people of all social, political, and economic standing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open minded, some of Brewster's beliefs may offend some students, but only if you do not come to class with an open and understanding mindset.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Brewster is a professor who will give it to you straight. He presents the information by giving examples of the way society is today and the way people act. He has powerpoints that gives you definitions of things he thinks is important but he doesn't teach his class like a normal professor. Instead of being in the front of a class reading off a powerpoint, he stands on the sides of the lecture hall and uses the definitions on the powerpoint by giving examples of things in every day life. Brewster has a way of presenting the information to where most people can remember what he said when they leave class.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, it doesn't mean you're going to automatically be a sociologist but it does give you a different look at society. You leave class and remember things that were said and you start to notice it actually happening in society.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to read the chapters in the book because they will help clarify some things and give you more examples if you need more examples.
