Reviews

I found the lectures quite interesting, Andy has a way of explaining concepts that don't make them seem as outlandish as they may be. His use of personal anecdotes really helped me understand the subject matter. The guest lecturers were okay, not too engaging, and depending on their subject matter could be a little dry. Brian was a really engaging lecturer, and I loved how he conducted his lectures, however, the subject matter was not too interesting. The readings in the subject were quite okay, but sometimes they were just far too much. One week there were 100 pages to read!!!! I felt my tutorials just weren't that interesting, but I can't blame it on the tutor. I think a class full of first years that were scared to share their opinion just wasn't the most interactive situation. Overall the subject was quite interesting, but you have to wait 11 weeks to see how all the subject matter actually connects to one another. The subject in itself is essential if you are moving forward with any social sciences. And a tip for your essay, I would say choose a topic which you are really passionate about because if not, it's going to be a treacherous 2000 words.

Readings were very theoretical and not always relevant to assignments. Found the subject VERY theory heavy overall.

Personally loved this subject. Thought it was a very good foundation for social sciences as it introduced all the foundational theorists; Marx, Durkheim, Weber, Foucault, etc. Lecturer (Andy) was great.

Interesting but lectures were not always relevant to assignments. My tutor and tutorial class were great though, so that made discussing the heavy readings much easier.

Fantastic subject to take in your first year. The head lecturer, Andy, is really entertaining and incredibly engaging. A couple of the guest lecturers could've been a bit more interesting. A couple of the lectures were also cancelled which sucked. The readings can be a little stale at times but will compel you to start developing your own critical analytical skills. It's a great introduction if you're thinking of majoring in politics, criminology or sociology.

Fascinating and engaging subject, also a good introduction to the liberal arts as a whole.+ as long as you do the readings all the content is easily manageable.

This subject is good if you're either majoring in or interested in politics. However the content was often very complex and not explored by lecturers and tutors in a comprehensive manner. There seemed to be a bit of disorganisation in the coordination of the subject, with lectures often being cancelled, but this was usually made up for. Some tutors were better than others. This subject is for you if you can cope with dense readings, broad and complex ideas and can teach yourself a lot of the content. Definitely don't take it just because everyone else seems to be. It was quite difficult and dry at times

Would not recommend this subject to anyone. Firstly, it was poorly organised. Almost every week there a lecture cancelled, and sometimes they didn’t tell us until 1 hour before. Secondly, the content was dry. Other than Andrew’s lectures at the start and a few good ones towards the end, the content was so boring and dense. Readings were near impossible to get through and barely helped with assessments. Lastly, tutors were useless and it was obvious they hated coming to class just as much as we did. Tutorials were the biggest waste of time. Filled with students regurgitating the readings & no genuine discussion. Useless subject that I’ll never need, only took it cause I had to.

Brilliant subject. Was intellectually challenged to the very end. Found it difficult, but learned stuff which will definitely help me through the rest of my time as a student.

A good foundation subject for criminology and politics. Intersects with a lot of other subjects, I would recommend if you're doing those majors.
