The Sociology (9-week course) course explores human relationships in society. It will emphasize culture, social structure, the individual in society, institutions and social inequality. Students will examine the various skills and techniques that sociologists employ when studying groups of people as well as examine a wide variety of groups and the behaviors that characterize them. Topics of study may include the socio-psychological process, attitude formation and change, interpersonal relations and social group processes. In this increasingly connected world, students will also examine problems in our society and learn how human relationships can influence their own lives as relative to social processes.
