This college preparatory elective provides an introductory level of understanding to the study and application of sociology. This course begins with an understanding of how Sociology differs in its analysis of the world, compared to other social sciences. Students will then explore the commonly used research methods within the field of sociology, and the importance of gathering information in an ethical manner. The final semester will then focus on the use of the sociological imagination, and building skills in understanding and gathering information about the cultures, societies, and the world around us, in an objective way, as well as exploring the inequalities that exist in a heterogeneous culture.
