S215 Social Change  Zamberia  11:15-12:30 TR 3609

The general objective of this course is to introduce students to
the historical and sociological processes of social change.
Given the fundamental changes occurring in the structure and
functioning of contemporary society, it is difficult to think of
an area in social life that is untouched by the processes of
social change.  The course will therefore cover a wide range of
perspectives to provide the students with a broad understanding
of social change issues.  Specific processes of change in
institutional structures such as the family, education, economy,
politics, and religion will be examined in detail.  Although
emphasis will be placed on changes in the American society, an
attempt will be made to relate these changes to processes of
change within an international context.
