Sociology 3210 (click to access class web site)
Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30-1:45 PM in 449 SSB.
This course is an introduction to sociological theory. It provides an overview of both classical and contemporary sociological theory. Special emphasis is given to the historical context and the philosophical theory emerges as well as the individuals responsible for identifying and developing the core concepts and perspectives which serve as the basis for sociological theorizing.
The main objective of this course is help students understand the relevance of sociological theory to their everyday lives--to place personal experiences into the broader perspective of sociological understanding, and to social being.
This is a Web-based class. Students in the Internet-only section are not required to attend "live" sessions, but are welcome to come, anyway (in-person or via Collaborate).
