What about you, any classes that stood out?
Those classes sound quite interesting. If I can be honest though, I'm a big fan of qualitative everything. I mean, don't get me wrong. There's a place for quantitative methods and stats was a big favourite of mine but I'd still choose a qualitative approach 8 times out of 10. My all time favourite will always be Intro to Sociology. Just a great course through and through. Tackled all the basics and I personally believed it could be enjoyed by everyone. Liked:
- Selected Topics in Sociology (Youth Culture)
= Really fun learning about the mods, punk rock, ravers, etc. - Sociology of Occupations
= I find Marx, Webber, and all things alienation to be cool too. - Sociology of the Media
= Semiotics ftw. Kind of In The Middie:
- Classical Theory
= It was interesting for the most part. I'll openly admit that some concepts were just too complex for me to grasp. - Social Problems
= Overview of racism, prejudices, etc. which seemed a bit redundant coming off of Intro. - Research Methods
= Mixed bag. It was a year long course so fatigue set in sometime around January. Not a Big Fan:
- Juvenile Delinquency
= Criminology related stuff just isn't my cup of tea but I'll admit it had some intriguing stuff to it.
