Corequisites: None
Description: This is a course designed to acquaint students with the nature of sociology, and will be an overview of the basic concepts, theories and research essential for sociological analysis of human interaction. The class will give an opportunity to develop a broad perspective of the social arrangements that cause our society to be cohesive and non-cohesive at other times. Both the objective and subjective realities of social interaction will be examined. To this end, the primary unit of analysis will be the social structure because the social structure of U.S. society, particularly in terms of the political and economic consideration of power, is the primary basis of stratification within our society. There will also be opportunities to focus more narrowly on particular topics of interest.
