WELCOME to Sociology 114.  This course will review the sociological and psychological factors that influence present-day marriages. 

You're going to read, take open book quizzes, write 2 papers about sociological topics, take 3 tests and answer questions on the message board. The majority of your grade comes from the tests and the papers. However, the message board and quizzes are very important and time consuming so, if you get behind, it can be a problem. Please make sure you've got a good study schedule set for yourself before you begin this class. Every semester, people take this class and fall behind. It can be fun if you stay current with your work.

Your first step, if you're enrolled is to email the instructor DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF CLASSES. That's not the week before, that's not the week after. The first week. You will need to use your official Citrus College issued email account. Your email is established when you are registered for classes. You must have access to your email account prior to starting the class.
