This course provides an introduction to the basic principles and procedures of sociology. Topics range from the micro-level analysis of everyday life (why don?t we bump into each other when we cross the street?) to the macro-level analysis of inequality (will the poor always be with us?). Major topics include culture, socialization, deviance, and stratification both from local and global contexts.General Education: Society and Human BehaviorGeneral Education: CIV: Social Justice
