Credits: 4

Why is there social inequality in the world? What is the long-term impact of the pandemic on our lives? What is meant by race being socially constructed? In this course, students begin to think about how society works through asking questions, and studying examples and cases from their own social environment. The course examines relationships among individual identity and experience, social groups and organizations, and social structures. We will discuss the economic, political, and cultural dimensions of social life and question social arrangements that seem natural or unchangeable, focusing primarily on the United States. Through synchronous and asynchronous activities, group discussions and creative research projects, we will cover topics such as social inequality, politics and power, culture, race and ethnic relations, gender, interaction, and socialization. The course also introduces students to major sociological theorists and sociological research methods.
