i really enjoyed this class... i'm actually doubling in soc because of her class. the subject is totally interesting because its all about the world and your surroundings... its totally applicable to real life... you start analyzing things around you, but in a good way though... not like "oh my gosh, what did he mean when he said 'i'll catch you later'?" its just looking at your life in a different way. i recommend her if you need a social science ge to fulfill or if you're the type of person who likes to learn about the society around you! she's really hip and to wake her students up before lecture, she plays modern songs that relates to the topic of discussion during lecture! exams are extremely straight forward. jsut read the reader and text book and youll do fine. there are 2 paper assignments.
Professor Stein is a wonderful professor who is truly passionate about what she teaches. She is extremely knowledgable and personable and this shows in her teaching. She makes lectures more enjoyable by including music, videos, and films that are contemporary, informative, and intesting. Discussion is optional in this class and her exams are well balanced and fair with a variety of multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions. Her class also includes a research paper, but it is on relevant and contemporary topics. Overall, this class is highly recommened to those who want to study the sociology of mass communications from a passionate expert.
