SOSC 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Wonderful professor and friend. If you want a professor who invests in the material and you take this course. Unorthodox approach to soc sc. He guides you to think inside, outside and around the box until there is no box. Course encourages independent and explorative thought and breaks you free from drone like, passive thinking.

SOSC 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Prof Goulding seems like a really nice man, but I didn't really get his teaching style. He is very confusing and unclear, and liked to go off on a lot of random tangents, which made a lecture hard to follow. I had to rely SOLELY on tutorials and my TA in order to understand what the hell was happening in this class.

SOSC 1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

Very nice man, but horrible, absolutely terrible prof. I was interested in the material...before I entered this class. If you don't regurgitate everything he says in lecture on your test, you won't get more than a B-, it's his way or the highway. This class brought my GPA down hard, and I'm an overall good student; take this class at your own risk.

SOSC 3515 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is very friendly and approachable, also very helpful if you ask for help. A bit boring and unclear, tends to ramble about random stuff. Overall I would highly recommend this professor and this course
