SOA 100 - Culture and Society (4 Cr.)

(GCR Social and Behavioral Sciences area)
This course offers an introduction to anthropological and sociological perspectives. We explore cultural variations and similarities among different societies and gain insights into the relationship between our personal lives, the lives of others, and the social forces that structure society. We examine the fundamental importance of human interactions, cultural tools and symbols, belief systems, and the socio-cultural formation of families and communities, self and identity, deviance, and race, gender, and social class. We also address inequality and the socio-cultural conditions of social change. Students who have previously received credit for SOC 106, ANT 106, SOA 107, or ANT 107 cannot take SOA 100 as it covers much of the same material and satisfies the same course prerequisites as these courses. Fall and spring semesters. Program faculty.
