Winter 2023 - the sweetest prof I ever had. Don't listen to anyone that says you can't understand him literally just sit closer and you're chillin. He's so cool and pls engage and talk to him people tend to pack up early but if you take this class PLS BE NICE TO HIM and protect him at all costs 🙏. Easy class and its comprised of 2 multiple choice quizzes and an essay. Pretty straightforward and the topics are kind of common sense.
Fall 2022 - Nothing grand, though the class might be fun for anyone interested in sociology. The assignments were just weekly 1-page reflections on the assigned reading for the week - the reflections were graded, though I'm not 100% sure what the criteria was (the averages pretty much stabilized 90-95 by week 3). The readings were, for the most part, research papers related to the topic covered that week in SOCIOL 1. In terms of the actual class period, the professor would usually give a 30-minute talk related to the reading, then ask the class to discuss/give opinions on it. (There usually weren't many.) Notably, this class doesn't really feed back into SOCIOL 1 - it won't give you an advantage there, for instance. That being said, I thought the readings were pretty interesting - they were generally a mix of major past studies and a few of the professor's own papers, which I thought was cool.
