>>[Jass music]>>[Jess] Marriage and Family is a very beneficial
class. It is a class that you get to learn why and how the family works the way it does.
Special activities that you will be looking forward to in this class are different debates.
Debates include debates on different viewpoints about stepfamilies, gay marriages and divorce.
It will better help you understand why things happen and different ways to view the things
that happen, good or bad. Other activities include watching videos; videos that relate
to concepts you are going to be learning in the class.>>[Johanna]When I started Sociology, it was
my first class at MCC and I really didn’t know what to expect per se. But within the
first day I got the syllabus and it was perfectly outlined of the expectations I had and it
followed it very well and regimently. It is very well outlined, it is comprehensive and
very interactive as well – the curriculum and there are a few group presentations and
they are never too scary or anything. And there is also a lot of interactive ways to
know the rest of the class so that you don’t feel like a loner in class ever usually.>>[John] During class one day we are divied
up. Half the class was totally on one boat and the other half was on another boat and
we were each assigned you know a social role. We had senators, a whore, you had a mom with
orphan, you had you know, a military captain. We had to decide who were the four people
who we were going to save based on the social context, where we come from.>>[Eric] So what I learned from Marriage
and Family which is a great class is that I learned how a marriage should work and what
basically what it is about, how you share responsibilities, how work is divied up, but
we also learned about the older types of marriage like what used to happen and how the work
used to be divided and I think that really brought into my horizons on marriage in general
and I think it opened up a lot of questions of what is to come for marriage. I think it
made me a better person and a better outlook on life.>>[Jazz music]
