Feedback from students in 2017:

  • I did notice that i am more capable than i thought. I feel like i know how to navigate UW better than i did before which will increase my chances in doing better as a student.
  • This class introduced me a lot of social science majors provided in UW. Besides getting to know these incredible majors, I also realized that there are so many options for me to chose, I should do more research about each of them and also try to understand the area that I care about.
  • Before taking this course, I thought the social sciences seemed interesting but I did not know much about them, let alone what disciplines fell under that category. Now, I know that I want to have at least one major, possibly two, in the social sciences. It might be psychology, sociology, political science, or who knows! My plan right now is to explore as many classes as I can about these potential majors and get to know what feels right.
  • I have discovered that the social sciences are broken down into many more categories than I ever expected. One issue can be examined through the lenses of many areas of study within the social sciences that can offer completely different insight from one another. However, while the subjects may vary in their approaches to their solutions to big problems, they rely on one another to understand broad concepts.
