Sociology | Introduction to Sociology

What shapes our behavior?  This question has been investigated in
almost every scientific field of study.  While some fields focus on
biological causes of behavior, sociology stresses the contexts and
social factors that influence individuals, and in turn how
individuals influence society.  The goal of this course is to develop
your understanding of sociology through class discussion, writing
assignments, and exams that require you to apply basic sociological
theories, principles, and concepts to readings, movies, and even your
own life.
