Soc 497 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Hilarious" "Gives good feedback" "Pop quiz master"

He was awesome Once you get his vibe for how he teaches you''ll think he''s pretty cool compared to other professors. He gives EC and his quizzes are from the lecture slides. He''s really funny and keeps the class non-boring. He was one of my favorite soc professors without a doubt

SOC 355 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B-

The class was kind of boring, but then again it was a class with close to 150 students...so what much can he do besides lecture for 1hr 15 minutes. There was a quiz every class, 1 paper and an online final. He was very unorganized, but really nice and gave a lot of extra credit for the class. He also curves the final grade.

soc 474 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy but he went off topic too much. He never responded to emails or posted things when he said he would. Tests were easy and he wasn't clear on how he wanted the paper.

SOC 355 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Didn't think this class would be so boring. He lectures from powerpoints that are posted on moodle for you to use to study with. He did quizzes every lecture which I sometimes hated but understand the point. There was a final paper that I enjoyed doing as I show my best in papers. He was pretty clear to me, but it's very boring...

SOC 304 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Worst Professor ever. I normally don't do this but he lacked any communication skills with the class and was not clear on what he wants from the papers. Good luck trying to get a hold of him, he never responds. He always says one thing, yet doesn't follow his own direction. He goes on rate my professor and makes up fake comments to make rating high

SOC 304 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Godard isn't too involved in his online classes. At first he was present & would respond to emails, but towards the middle & end of the semester he would go MIA. His tests (which r very vague) would never be posted when he said they would be. U must be really involved & actually read all the posts (which is what is on the tests). He seems nice!

SOC434 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A lot of reading but it's interesting. If you do the reading he's an easy A. Three small papers that you can turn it at an time. He gives several ways to earn extra credit. Teacher is funny and fun. I would definitely recommend him. Also, never had to stay the entire class time he always was done earlier

Very helpfull. Although the course is challenging, but the instructor was amazing.You have to read the textbook in order to be in truck. Quizes for every lecture, papers with opportunities to earn extra points. My suggesns keep up with readings, attend the class and do assignments.Start watching shows earlier in the semester.

SOC434 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Take this class. Its a little boring but he knows what he talking about. Takes quizzes with an app, quizzes are 20% of grade. 2 Exams, mostly based on notes/powerpoint. 2 Short essays based on TV show Episodes. Easy class overall. I would take this proffesor again.

Dr. Godard is a dorky, funny guy. His class can drag on sometimes but he will definitely make you laugh with his jokes. The material itself can be a bit challenging and he tends to be fast-paced. Go to class, read, and do the work, you should be fine. He does drop some how,labs, and quizzes. It's only as hard as an upper division class should be.

SOC497L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is vey funny, but his course is really hard so much to do so many assignments and all of them are really hard.Try to find another instructor for this course. Eventhough he drops 3 quizes, labs, and homeworks still really hard. you woould want to be in the class every time because during the lectures he gives quizes and you need clickers for it.

ellis is a great teacher! lectures are lengthy and can be hard to understand. he offers extra credit opportunities and makes himself available to assist students through many different outlets. there is a lot of work assigned in class but he drops the 3 lowest quizzes, labs and homeworks. take his class, it's hard to fail!

Funny. Very cool but he makes things more confusing. Probably better to take from someone who knows how to explain.

Great professor! He is available literally 24/7 if you have any questions. He is very thorough in giving directions and explaining things. And just wants to help you pass the class. There's a lot of work, but its pretty straight forward. I recommend this teacher!
