2021 Fall Block 3
SOC 101/Course/A - Sociological Thinking | Credits 1.00

Do you wonder why people do the things they do? Why society works as it does? Ever think the world is “unfair”? Sociologists study people in the world, looking at patterns, at differences, at inequalities. Thinking sociologically is like “entering a new and unfamiliar society--one in which things are no longer what they seem.” It creates “culture shock without geographical displacement.” This course requires us to look at society with a new perspective, to question our taken-for-granted assumptions, to investigate people's actions, and to explore the organization of society. It provides a basis for being engaged citizens, thinking about social alternatives, and imagining possibilities for social justice. Credit may be given for either 101 or 102, but not for both. Not open to seniors without permission of the instructor.
