This is a very unconventional course for the Sociology department. It's a creative non-fiction writing class that explores sociology in a very broad sense, doesn't require much theoretical knowledge at all. Prof. Tiger primarily uses flash non-fiction in her own work/ research, so it's very valuable to get insight and advice on how to balance the social and the individual stories. The 'homework' is writing, as much as you can, editing / workshopping, and fairly short reading assignments. We'd reach short stories weekly that use different techniques and try them in our own writing to see how it works, if it fit our writing, etc. The class was low-stress high-value, with only 1 big "assignment" which was a public reading at the end of the semester where we read 1 piece we had refined, and which was also an incredibly rewarding experience. I recommend both Prof. Tiger and this class to everyone!!

The course had an interesting topic and I most likely would've enjoyed it more if I were more interested in sociology. However, since I'm not super interested in it, the amount of reading we had to do got really annoying. however, getting a good grade in the class wasn't super hard as the papers were short and graded fairly easily.

Super interesting class and I learned a lot! I went into the course with no background in sociology but this sparked my interest in the field. Good discussions, not a lot of homework and the only homework is readings.
