SOCY 1 Introductory Sociology

How have societies developed historically? How are societies stratified by wealth, income, and other resources, and how has this changed over time? How are the opportunities and outlooks of individuals shaped by the communities in which they reside? How do individuals come together to produce meaningful social change? This course provides answers to these and other questions in ways that provide a broad introduction to the field of sociology. We will cover how sociologists and other social scientists conduct research, key theories and concepts that guide the discipline, and explore a wide range of topics including race, class, gender, inequality, collective action and social change. In many cases, the topics covered in the course reflect the research interests and course offerings of faculty in the sociology department at Dartmouth. As a result, the course also provides an introduction to some of the curriculum offered in the department. Open to all classes.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
