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. Fall and spring semesters. Program faculty.
