|16 Weeks - Distance Education course |
Welcome to Sociology 202 Online!
In this class, emphasis is placed on contemporary American society and social problems and special attention is given to the causes and effects of social problems.
What will I be doing?
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.
