Description

Sociology is an expanding field used by those who craft public policies and programs.

In this course, you’ll look at human interaction in a wide range of situations, from the intimate family to the hostile mob; from organized crime to religious cults; and from the divisions of race, gender, and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture.

You’ll learn how to take a disciplined view of social inequality, discover the forces behind social change and resistance, and see how social systems work. Few fields have such a broad scope and relevance for research, theory, and the application of knowledge.
