Most of you come into this class asking yourself, “What is sociology?” Good question, I found myself asking that same question in high school during my first sociology class. In short, sociology is the study of society. I define sociology as seeing society from a view point other than your own. In a society where we stress individualism more and more every day, this becomes more difficult to understand or contemplate. Through this class, students will learn to see society through a set of different eyes. Students will see how social theory and research shape the decisions we make, the social change we desire, and the social constructs around us.

Sociology enables us to make observations and insights into the social world. Our aim in this course is to develop a sociological perspective by addressing a series of broad questions regarding the society we inhabit. We will work together throughout the semester to analyze and develop a deeper understanding of the social world through the lens of sociological inquiry. Along the way, you will become familiar with the substantive topics within the field of sociology. We will also begin to develop critical thinking skills with a focus of application to the real world and current events.

Pedagogy: This class is web-enhanced and therefore has substantial online content. To encourage participation and increase ease of access for the maximum number of students, participants can complete assignments online instead of physically attending class without any negative repercussions.
