    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was just an elective course for me personally but it was a pretty interesting class that wasn't too boring. Of course the lectures can be a bit dull but one of the books in particular was a great read at the end of the semester. The book was The Righteous Dopefiend and it was based on a sociological study on the homeless heroin injectors of California. Many things taught in this class were quite relatable to real life and were interesting to say the least.

    Course highlights:

    As previously stated, my favorite part of the class was reading Righteous Dopefiend which was the topic of the majority of the final. The book was written to raise awareness of the conditions the homeless heroin injectors lived in and the help that they need. This book was informational and i would highly suggest it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to do well on the tests, read the material assigned at the beginning of the course. Follow the syllabus' reading schedule and take notes when you deem necessary.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Even though the course is a requirement, I was very passionate about my experience in class. I was actually excited to attend the lecture and learn about sociology, which was a bit of a surprise to me. If you enjoy learning how the human mind works and how society's individuals connect as a whole, this course will actually interest you.

    Course highlights:

    Learning how every bit of prejudice is a work of society's need for social norms was probably one of the most interesting things about the course. I love understanding why some aspects of culture are frowned upon while others are highlighted -- not matter how silly or ridiculous​ a trend may be.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    He uses a program called TopHat, which is much more important to your participation point than you may think. Eve though I made perfectly fine grades on the tests, TopHat brought my overall grade down. He likes to warn you when he will use the program, so -- PLEASE -- listen for when he does!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class had great readings. Buying more than 2 books for a class seems like money being wasted. This class had 3 or 4. However, the money was well spent. The concepts gone over in this class were ones I never really thought of but having the sociologically explained was very interesting. These concepts included, sexuality and gender, drugs, the concept of social connections, and even the anatomy of a break up.

    Course highlights:

    I could see that there was more to life. Instead of seeing a person and their friend as one connection, I could see that there was a potential of a web of connections that could expand more and more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read and join in on discussions.
