This class was tough.
I took the course online, however, Professor Gagne was a wonderful instructor. The course was organized and concise. All the assignments had specific due dates with specific requirements, so it was easy to understand. She was also available via email nearly always, so you can go to her with questions when needed.
The course itself was incredible. Definitely one of my favorite courses I've taken in college, so far. There were two topics that I really enjoyed. The first being Karl Marx. I have always thought Marxism was interesting, however, learning about Alienation theory really changed my perspective on the working class and the extremes of labor exploitation. I learned so much that I've decided to make that my focus topic for my English course this semester. The second aspect I enjoyed was learning about was Emile Durkheim's Theory of Suicide. The way in which he analyzed suicide was fascinating, granted I don't agree with many of those concepts. I find suicide to be more personal than Durkheim stated. However, in terms of altruism and egoism, I completely understood and concurred with his theory.

Advice for students:
You have to read everything! Also, start on your papers early. They are each a minimum of 10 pages, required. The topics are not difficult if you keep up with the readings and the homework.
