Sociology | Introduction to Sociology
S100 | 4052 | Wilde


This course is designed to teach students what sociology is, and to
introduce 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 and gender.  For the final part of the course, you will
read your choice of one of three science fiction novels and write a
paper on how the theories we've learned about in the first part of
the course help us to understand the imagined society being
portrayed in the novel.
