Course ePortfolio Description:
Sociology is the study of society. It focuses on identifying, explaining, and interpreting patterns and processes of human social relations. This introductory course is designed not just to teach you some of the major findings of sociology, but to help you master fundamental sociological skills, including both the ability to think with a "sociological imagination" and to understand the basics of computer-based data analysis--skills which have broad applicability in a range of educational and work settings. Suggested textbooks are: Joan Ferrante, Sociology: A Global Perspective, Seventh Edition, 2008 and Anderson & Taylor, Sociology: Understanding a Diverse Society.
