Some courses fulfill a requirement or an elective in college, and some courses give you invaluable knowledge that helps you understand people and the society in which you live. Introduction to Sociology does both.
Introduction to Sociology will give you a broad overview of sociology and how it applies to everyday life. You’ll examine major theoretical perspectives and concepts, including sociological imagination, culture, deviance and crime, social stratification and inequality, social change, and social structure. You will learn how a social scientist applies the scientific method to culture and then use it yourself to judge the influence of social class and social institutions, such as churches, education, healthcare, government, economy, the environment, and even family structures.
