SOCI 1001 - Introduction to Sociology
In this course you will learn in numerous ways that sociology is the systematic study of human society and social life. This course is designed to be an introduction to the development of sociology, and an examination of the range of concepts, principles, and methods that comprise modern sociology using a core text and academic journal articles. We will examine important issues and institutions of contemporary society, including culture, socialization, gender, race and ethnicity, education, family, inequality, and social change. A particular focus will be on the examination of intersectionality in formal organizations (i.e., workplaces). By the semester’s end it is anticipated that students will understand the sociological perspective and be able to discuss sociological issues using the language of the discipline.
