This is a course designed to introduce the key theories at use in sociology and other related academic disciplines, with close attention paid to inequality, solidarity, individualism, bureaucracy and capitalism. The goal is to provide a theoretical web and collaborative learning experiences wherein students will be able to situate social theories and debates in relation to one another, in relation to the theories/perspectives of other disciplines, and also in relation to important issues of the day. This course meets the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-Social majors through exercises and activities to facilitate reflection on, and integration of, prior General Education and Sociology courses.
