Spring 2016 - Bargheer is so nice! The class has lots of readings since you read older works of Sociology. I got an A- for the class when I thought I was getting a B. Grades on: 3 Pop Quizzes (They are easy and won't hurt you), Midterm (In Class, 2 short ssays) and Final (Take Home, two 5 Page Essays). The readings can get difficult but the TA's will help you understand them. I think my TA was a rough grader cause I think I deserved better grades from the midterm and final lol. Take this class with Bargheer or Jepson! I hear both are good . PLFs help too if you are in AAP! I am a first year and I would recommend this class (Remember that I got an A-). I did not stress much about the class tbh
Winter 2017 - I really loved this class. I was hoping for an A, but even so I feel like I got a lot out of this class. I took this class as an Environmental Systems and Society Minor requirement, so I was really interested in the material. Mostly Soc majors in the class. Lots of people don't go to lectures, but there are a few pop quizzes in class. Discussion is mandatory, and my TA was pretty strict/harsh which is why I think I ended up with a B+.
