This survey of sociological principles and problems has as its main purpose to introduce us to the most important theoretical perspectives, concepts and major findings of sociology so as to develop a quality of mind, “the sociological imagination,” that would provide us with a better understanding of the subtle and complex connections existing between our own life and the world around us.

We will address such fundamental issues as the Individual, Culture and Society; Socialization, Conformity, and Deviance; Institutions such as Work, the Media, Family and Intimate Relationships; Structures of Power and Inequalities of Class, Race, Gender, Sexuality; as well as issues of Personal Transformation, Social Movements, and Social Change.

Hopefully, the substance of this course and the manner it is taught will inspire all of us to further examine our own lives and the workings of the surrounding society by means of perspectives and insights gained from this introductory course. Course requirements include three non-cumulative exams (20% each), a course portfolio (20% total), and class attendance and participation (20%).
