Sociology | Introduction to Sociology
S100 | 20980 | Dodson


The “sociological imagination” provides a useful framework for
exploring the causes and consequences of social behavior.  During the
semester, we will take this framework and apply it to a variety of
topics, including racial inequality, education, and social change.
In so doing, you will become acquainted with the terms and concepts
that are central to sociology as well as some of the unique insights
provided by the discipline.  Ultimately, I hope this class equips you
with some of the tools that sociologists use in understanding our
society.
