SOC 102 Introduction to Sociology: Global Perspectives

This course adopts a global perspective to introduce students to sociology, the scientific study of societies. It will examine the self, socialization, social ties, social interaction, social institutions, and social change, considering both conformity and deviance. Students will leave with a "sociological imagination," the ability to see their own lives and the lives of others in the context of their wider societies and an increasingly interconnected world. Open only to frosh and sophomores, or by permission of instructor.
