SOCI-001-01 Introduction to Sociology
Spring for 2016-2017
Faculty:
WF 8:00-9:15AM

Sociology is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. Sociologists investigate the structure of groups, organizations, and societies, and how people interact within these contexts. (American Sociological Association, 2005)

In this course students will learn the basics of sociology through a variety of readings and film clips and "do" sociology with regular data workshops where they will test theories and recognize the social construction we all experience. By the end of the semester, students will be able to understand and explain:

• Basic concepts, generalizations, theories, and methods used in the study of sociology;
• The sociological focus and the influence the study of sociology has on identifying, explaining, and solving (or causing) social policy issues; and
• How sociology is used in everyday life to explain the social behavior of people, and even predict what they will do.

SOCI-001-03 Introduction to Sociology
Spring for 2016-2017
Faculty:
MW 12:30-1:45PM

This course introduces you to the discipline of sociology and a sociological perspective for understanding human behaviors and social structure. We will discuss a great variety of topics, such as social class, gender, race and ethnicity, culture, work, family, and community. While topics are quite diverse, we will be consistent in applying a sociological perspective and attempt to understand how individual lives and social groups are shaped by social structures, cultural understandings and distributions of power. In order to exercise our sociological imagination, the course assignments challenge the students to dissect the current events from sociological perspectives.
