This course will give students a basic understanding of some of the most important concepts in the social sciences: globalization, culture, and social change. The class will focus on the concept of culture, the diversity of cultures, the ways in which cultures influence each other through globalization, and the ways cultures change across time. We will consider how social change occurs and the theories of ordinary people about the causes and consequences of change. The class will examine globalization, culture, and social change through case studies of the lives of actual and fictional individuals, families, and communities. Students will learn about theoretical frameworks and receive experience in applying a theoretical framework to these case studies.
