This is a STARR tested course as well as being a graduation requirement.
Sociology presents a comparative look at group behavior in many cultures, social classes, and communities. It
introduces the student to the ways sociologists investigate, describe, and analyze social life. The process of
socialization, showing how both males and females learn cultural patterns and social norms as children, adolescents,
and adults, is a major focus. The topics of race, ethnicity, poverty, and the role of change are also discussed.
