Man is described as a “social being.” Whether by nature or nurture, man has traditionally chosen to live within groups. In this course, behavior is studied from that perspective. Groups respond to the environment in ways that make for interestingly different patterns worldwide. Topics considered include: 1) the individual within the group, 2) processes of socialization, 3) worldwide cultures and cultural values, 4) organizations and institutions within the society, and 5) social problems. Methods include selected readings, classroom discussion, and research and group projects. Although any student can benefit from Sociology, many college majors require course work in this field. This course can help prepare for those college classes.
