SOC 02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This professor makes you work hard for your A. Take good notes of her unorganized lecture because it will be on the exam. Make sure to read the book because she asks detailed-specific Qs on her exams. There are a total of 3 exams in her class-2 exams are matching, multiple choice, T/F and 1 essay Q. Final is all of the above excluding essay Q.

Sociology 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

This teacher does not spoon feed you. All her lectures, write it down. It will be on the test. STUDY STUDY for the tests! She gives 3 tests, including final. First 2 tests had 10 EC MC but that is it for EC. THIS IS NOT AN EASY CLASS! I worked hard during this summer intersession. READ THE BOOK, HIGHLIGHT EVERYTHING, & WRITE NOTES ON THE SIDE!

socio 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's very clear on what she expects from you! Attendance and participation counts towards your grade so if you're shy about presenting in front of the class then this class is not for you. Also tests are very easy! Study study study! AND you get to use open book for 30 mins on the exam. Also take good notes in class! TAKE HER! She's fantastic!

SOCIO 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

EXCELLENT professor! Very clear on what is expected. Goes over everything in class to prepare for the tests. Very personable professor! I am honored to have had the privilege of taking her class! Definitely one of the best of PCC professors just on personality alone! Not to mention all the theories your learn to perceive society in the real world.

SOCIO 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Ireland-Galman is very very knowledgeable in her field and makes the topic of sociology really engaging for students. I've taken her honors section and though there is ALOT of material that is covered in each test, it's a good challenge to have. The tests and class are revovled around the text. 3 tests (including final) and 2 papers.

Socio024 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I love Prof. Galman! She is an amazing prof. They way she teaches is very engaging, and she expects you to be interactive in class discussions. You watch a lot of videos and they're in tests so take notes. Her tests also cover up to 5 ch. each so make sure you do your reading. Be there on the days she does her T/F and analysis papers!

Psych 21 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is wonderful! Her test can be tricky but, keep up with the reading, study, and you will be fine. She holds you responsible for getting the information on the days you miss (so make a friend fast). Don't be shy if you have questions. take advantage of her office hours she is very helpful.

SOC001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very knowledgeable about sociology. You have to buy the book. If you study the worksheets that she gives you, you should do fine. Memorization is a must but she is a great teacher. Exams are 30 min without the book, 30 mins with the book, and another 30 mins with the book again. I took her for marriage and family as well.

soc24 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Ireland-Galman has a deep passion for sociology and is an excellent professor. Well at least for marriage and the family course. She was very insightful, lectures were really interesting and shes kinda dorky. Tests were a little tricky so make sure to brush up and read. I had an A but didn't study for one of the tests ended up getting a B :/
