SOC 448 - Sociological Theory

4 Credits

In this course students learn classic and contemporary social theories and consider their impact on current sociological research. By reading primary texts from a wide variety of social theorists, students not only engage directly with the ideas and assumptions embedded in social theory, they are also able to consider how socio-political forces shape which writers were excluded from the field in its early formations. This perspective deepens students’ critical awareness of ideas and assumptions within sociology and other social sciences, leaving them better equipped to understand the complexity of social research.
Prerequisites: Any SOC course.
