This class is super dependent on the professor to make it interesting. I’d recommend it as a bird course but only if you like writing essays.
My section was mainly structured around how to write essays in the social sciences, with most of the in class content being lectures recapping the textbook readings. It’s only useful if you’ve like never written an essay before to be honest.
Dr. Skarlato is pretty good - while she can be a little dry she at least seems like she cares about doing a good job teaching. She often let class go an hour early because she didn’t feel like wasting our time.
If you hate essays, don’t take this. If you don’t mind them, and you know how to write them, you’re golden - just be prepared to be a little bored.
