Course Description:

A survey of the basic issues, concepts, theories and methods of sociology. Students learn to think critically about the nature of society and social institutions, and the relationship among individuals and groups. Topics will include social organization, socialization and social change, social stratification, class and class conflict, gender, race, and ethnicity.

Essential Objectives:

1. Describe the origin and development of sociology as a social science and give examples of how sociological concepts, theories, and methods can be used to explain cultural and social phenomena.
2. Discuss how the interrelationships of heredity, environment, and social agents contribute to the development and socialization of the self.
3. Discuss the influence of social, cultural, and institutional contexts on behavior norms.
4. Compare the structure and function of various social groups and identify the factors which affect group dynamics.
5. Differentiate between functionalist, conflict, and interactionist explanations of deviance and social control.
6. Compare theories of social stratification and discuss resulting inequalities such as class, power, prestige, gender, ethnicity, age, and ability.
7. Identify key social institutions such as the family, education, religion, politics, and economy, and examine their composition and function in society.
8. Demonstrate and interpret how demographic and statistical research is used to understand and respond to social change and recognize critical questions about quantitative claims.
9. Describe the applications of sociology locally and globally and the various roles that sociologists play in today's society.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
