I think over all that the school is a great place to learn. They offer a wide array of programs, online and in classes. I liked the sociology courses I took best. I found it fun to learn about nature vs nurture, and many other topics. We wrote papers, had discussions and watched some movies and documentaries about many different subjects in sociology. I had fun and learned alot.
