△ SOC 377 - Social Theory

(3 S.H.)

In this course, students will discuss a range of classical and contemporary social theories. This course will help students see that the normal, familiar aspects of their everyday life frequently have unexpected and startling dimensions. Students learn to uncover layers of meaning that are often hard to discern in things, choices, and events in the world around them. Students explore the social forces that structure life in modern society; forces that affect the ideas, identities, and life courses of individuals and groups. Students also learn to assess their own social position and understanding of society, which will allow them to subject society and themselves to scrutiny. This course will address multiple subject areas within sociology, including the self, media, religion, social change, gender, sexuality, and race. Prerequisite: SOC 150 - Introduction to Sociology . Grade only. Offered each semester.
