Course Description: 

Sociology provides a unique way to look at human behavior and social interaction. Sociology is the systematic study of the groups and societies in which people live. In this introductory course, we analyze how social structures and cultures are created, maintained, and changed, and how they affect lives of individuals. In this course, we will reconsider our taken for granted world and examine what theory and research can tell us about our social world.
