Sociology | Introduction to Sociology
S100 | 26729 | Wilde


This course is designed to teach students what sociology is, and to
introduce you to what we as sociologists do.  My goal is to convince
you that sociology is interesting and important.  Over the semester,
we will be reading original work in the sociology of race, class,
deviance, gender and religion.  You will learn about how the research
was conducted, what was found, and what those findings tell us about
our society.  As you are reading these books, you will also be
conducting research on yourselves, and others.  You will observe and
compare two groups of people, and you will also learn about how you,
as a class, differ from the rest of the country.
