Comments on the course

I took this a long time ago, so he may have updated the course a bit since then. 100a and 100b made me fall in love with sociology, as I'm sure is the same for a bunch of others at UVic who have had the chance to watch Bruce lecture. I took both sections with friends which made the experience enjoyable as we would study and attend classes together. In my experience, don't treat the course as a fly-by elective otherwise you're going to get burned by those midterms/finals. You only have like 50 minutes to get down 2-4 little essays filled with terms and examples you have to memorize exactly. I remember we had 2 midterms, 2 papers (1 content analysis, 1 lit review), and a final exam. A great primer for future courses in soci, but definitely one of the most work-intensive. Thanks Bruce! :)

Advice

Textbook was very mandatory when I took it; proceeds go to charity in downtown Victoria.
