Introduction to Sociology - 38298 - SOCI 001 - 01
Sociology Required Core Course: 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. Some seats in this class are reserved.

Introduction to Sociology - 38299 - SOCI 001 - 02
Sociology Required Core Course: 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.

Introduction to Sociology - 38302 - SOCI 001 - 05
Sociology Required Core Course: Sociology is the systematic study of human social behavior. Sociologists examine not only how social structures shape our daily interactions but also how society constructs social categories and social meanings. The purpose of this course is to offer an overview of the major concepts, theories and methodologies of sociology, and enable you to think sociologically. Thinking sociologically enables us to make observations and offer insights about the social world that extend far beyond either common sense or explanations that rely on individual quirks and personalities; to develop an awareness of the connection between personal experience and the larger society. Throughout this course you will be introduced to “the sociological imagination” and be encouraged to develop this critical capacity to understand how the social world around you works. Some seats in this class are reserved.
