Sociology 1, Winter 2012, Grade: A

Professor's a nice guy, especially if you go to his office hours. He's late coming to class's (not always bad) and he's also late at posting grades (well, it was a lot of grading).

Lecture is just popping out terms, one after another. Get those terms down for midterms and finals, or have get them for you. Sadly, because the class is just terms, the professor doesn't have a lot of time to get into interesting concepts.

Skim through the textbook before class if you want to have an idea of what you'll hear in lecture, but not everything in the textbook will come up in lecture, and thus not in the midterm/finals. There was a supplemental book, but it only came up in discussions and references in lecture, but its content did not come up in the midterm/finals, so I would say skim that as well. Oh, and discussion is mandatory, so go there and please don't be one of those silent, dead students.

Midterm and finals consisted of 15 multiple choice, 5 short response, and one essay prompt (out of two). One or two of the multiple choice questions do come from the textbook, but if you study the lecture well, you have a good chance to get them. Essays are graded leniently I think.

Now, the 12 page research paper wasn't as bad as it first came up to be. I did write the paper overnight, but I started gathering data (online surveys) 2-3 weeks before hand. The research paper is not that hard if you choose a topic that interests you, and you can pretty much choose anything. Grading on the papers depend on your T.A., and I'm sure they graded leniently because it's only Sociology 1.

Overall, it's a doable G.E.

Professor Hunt is sooo fine! Too bad he's pretty boring. Extremely intelligent, but boring. He does place too much emphasis on the sociological portion instead of delving more into the rich culture of African-Americans. Like the whole first part of the course was learning sociology terms. Uhh, okay. The midterm was SO EASY. I only read the Stuart Hall Representation book and got a 95/100. I didn't come to lecture that much the second half, didn't read any more books, and got an A in the class. The reason I didn't have to read the books is because my TA, Rob Baker, is freakin' AWESOME. Funny, sweet, and has a good grast of the material, and covers what's important.
