Introduction to Sociology
3 Credit Hours
This course introduces students to the field of sociology, including its main perspectives and research methods. Students are expected to understand socialization and the major agents thereof and begin to develop a sociological imagination. They will use this foundation to examine social inequality as it relates to socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. Students will also explore the ways in which socially constructed categories of difference intersect with major social institutions.
