Although the coursework seems to repeat itself at times, Professor Gerke is a great human being who clearly cares about his students and their success. He was very lenient with extensions, and would make sure that he was clear in his instructions for assignments. There was a fair bit of reading, but nothing out of the ordinary for sociology courses.
The material can be a little bit repetitive at times, but still can be interesting if you enjoy the sport. Professor Gerke is extremely nice and accommodating. I would recommend this class to anyone who likes soccer.
The material taught in Soccer & Society was a bit boring and repetitive. Nonetheless, Professor Gerke is a great teacher and is very well-intentioned for each of his students. I would take another class from Gerke- he is very chill and overall great.
