I am finishing up both Transitions and SOC 50. I didn't find Transitions as being demanding, it was more like busy-work. SOC 350 was the real challenge for me. There are several mini papers and essays and one large project that is due at the end. The course does have 2 quizzes that consist of multiple choice and essay questions. The essay questions require citations and references in APA formatting. The final exam is rather extensive, it is worth 245 points and consists of multiple choice and 5 essay questions. If I had a choice I would have taken this course by itself.
