Topic:  Global Society

Sociologists are interested in trying to describe the influences of
society on human behavior.  Human behavior is set in the context of
multiple frameworks, such as social class, race, gender and even
nation.  This class, “Global Society” takes the approach of looking
at how our location in the world influences our behavior. In the
class we will be learning about basic theories of sociology and
looking at them comparatively to see how they change across country
contexts. We will study topics such as culture, family, economics,
and global stratification and how they differ from country to
country.
