SOCI-150 Social Intelligence in Everyday Life
Theoretical and methodological tools of the discipline of sociology are used to challenge common sense understandings of self and society, as well as to propose modifications of day-to-day social routines and practices. Social intelligence is the degree of awareness individuals and groups have about the complexity and predictability of varied social forms and processes. Topics to be explored include: what it means to be human; how specific social realities and living conditions are created and maintained; to what extend we make free choices in personal and policy decisions; and effective strategies for social change. Particular attention is given to the influence of diversity in the U.S. and in the world.
