    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The lax structure consisting of no exams, quizzes, or final allowed students to open up their opinions and their view on certain subjects.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to talk and learn about common characteristics between different cultures and different time periods was the highlight of this course.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up and do the job. Your grade is solely composed of participation/attendance and three writing assignments, so every class counts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is interesting class. I could learn many interesting things in this class. Exam is not so difficult and lectures are fun.

    Course highlights:

    this cause is a lecture class. I learned the basic concept of sociology through many aspects of culture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    you don't need to buy a text book, but Dr. Park expects student to read an article before the class. You don't have to read it, but if you want to get a good grade, reading articles is required

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    John Paul did an excellent job of leading a class discussion and introducing new, controversial ideas to students. While leading these discussions, he was careful to make sure that students were voicing their different opinions while also making sure that opposing view points were executed in a way that was honest without being brutal.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was the discussions. We discussed many different topics from gender, race, music genres, and power structures within society. One of my favorite topics was some of the more controversial genres such as hip hop, rap and heavy metal. We discussed how these genres have other societal ties attached to them such as social class, financial standing, race and other associated stereotypes. For example, we discussed that some stereotypes for heavy metal are gothic, depressed, white, men from lower income families. But then we went around the room to see who of our classmates listened to heavy metal and proved this stereotype to be incredibly incorrect. He introduced topics that may have never been brought up if we were to stick strictly to a textbook.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say absolutely take this course. He asks you to read and discuss what you have read in these packets, but absolutely do it. Don't push it off until the end, but if you sit down and ration out the readings it's not bad at all and it will lead to a better understanding of sociology and you will get more out of the class.
