      seems like it was required for some, likely for sociology majors. Maybe the easy answer is to make the course just an elective and have the Professor teach another class in the core sociology curriculum, in addition to this elective.

          If so, what's the beef? The students who don't think they will be comfortable in the class shouldn't take it.
