    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is an essential class that is usually a qualification for most degrees. It can be tough with tests, but gives a significant amount of insight into your own life as well as others. It teaches you about common things in our world that one would not even realize or know anything about. Many people love this class and will actually get a degree in it. This class will show one how humans do the things that they do in certain situations and can tell you why people feel the emotions they do. It explains the thought process and reactions that goes through a human brain. Every topic discussed in this class is completely and utterly intriguing.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about different types of family and marriages. How one man can have many wives or one woman can have multiple husbands, or completely the opposite, they can only each have one marital spouse at one time. I learned about deviances and how everyone is a deviance in this world because everyone is different. There is no two people completely the same. I was taught about interactions between two people and interactions with one's self. I was able to understand the thought process of a human when they are emotionally hurt or how they fall in love. I learned an immense amount of information from this single class on the world and life as we know it, as well as how much it has changed over decades, even centuries.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would show up to every single class. Each set of notes from everyday is very important and will help you in the long run. I remember that I received the best score on any of my tests when I had all of the notes from every class in that lesson. I also encourage taking notes on everything and writing down as many things as possible, even if it is an example that the professor gives, because even some of those are on the test and may even help you understand the meaning of one vocabulary word. Take it slow, pay attention, show up to class, and read the chapters. If you read the chapters you will retain so much more information than you will from one single class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Incredibly interesting material, and a professor who is excited to teach. The only issue I have with her is her disorganization of material. If you write what she write on the board, your notes will be borderline unusable. I suggest taking notes as best you can, and then rewriting them in a more organized fashion once out of class.

    Course highlights:

    The sociological perspective is one of the first things covered but refers to all of the kownledge you will be gaining throught the class. How you see yourself in respect to your immediate and extended surroundings. It's opens up your mind to fresh ideas and allows for a much broader perspective of the world we live in. Very interesting material all the way through.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Refer to above. She is incredibly disorgainized with her material but is good and explaining and presenting in a way that remains interesting. Take as many notes as you can in class, including her asides, because they will be on the test, and then rewrite them in a more organized fashion once out of class
