SOC2295 Sociology II
The world around us is in flux. Violence, insecurity and economic stability is on the rise. Sociology is the study of human social interactions and the institutions used to manage interaction. Social scientists try to analyze the world through proven scientific constructs to understand why people behave the way they do and to anticipate future trends.
This course will detail the dominant sociological theories and analyze how these frameworks can help us understand current world conditions. Students will see the interconnectedness of human systems and respect individual values. This will enable them to set proper goals and better understand other people.
Sociology II will equip the student with current sociological theories and tools to analyze behavior. It will foster discussion of how we can use sociological understandings to better understand modern society. At the end of this course the student will know:
- The major sociological theories
- Sociological perspectives
- Sociological systems in the modern world
- The difference between society and culture
- Some of the values, customs, beliefs and behaviors of differing societies
- How to use sociological theoretical models to analyze and anticipate societal behavior
- How to quantify social interaction
