Excessively anal about small useless details. Over the top for a 100 level course, not very friendly or approachable.

Alper is very helpful. Tests are given based on comprehension of material, so you really need to understand the sociological theories she is teaching. Has mandatory office hours (twice sometime through the semester, worth 5% of your overall grade). Final is a dissertation paper worth 15% and tests are typically worth 15-20% of your overall grade

Good professor. Very helpful. No final (dissertation-like paper using social theories instead). Occassional in-class assignments but other than that just reading assignments. Tests are built to evaluate if you actually UNDERSTAND the material, not memorized the definitions. Overall a great professor
