Sociology - SOC

Sociology is both a scientific and a humanistic discipline. It is concerned with the study of systems of social action and their interrelations. The systems of action include, in increasing order of size and complexity: single social acts, social relationships, organizations, institutions, communities and societies. Survey courses focus on basic sociological theory and analytic techniques. There are also substantive courses in marriage and the family, and social problems. The program includes a variety of courses, and utilizes a number of teaching methods, including those which emphasize student participation through group and individual activity.
