Primary Instructor:

Sociology is the exciting and systematic study of individuals within the context of their society. This introductory course offers new perspectives by which to examine the world on a micro (individual or personal) sociological level, as well as on a macro (global) level. Students are introduced to the Sociological Imagination and its application to social interaction and issues of social inequality (class and stratification, gender and sex, age, race and ethnicity). In the latter part of the course these principles are applied to the American family, exploring family structures, love, commitment, child and domestic abuse, maltreatment, neglect, and violence.
