West Los Angeles College Online 3:10 hrs/wk 16 week course Course Overview This online course serves as an introduction to sociology. Many topics like crime, poverty, and education will be discussed. Problems in society are not one dimensional; rather they tend to be complex and can only be understood when viewing them from all angles. Through the texts, lecture slides, video clips, and on-line discussions we will explore socialization and how socially constructed concepts help shape the reality of our lives. In this course students analyze the influence of the social environment on behavior and social life using sociological theoretical perspectives. This course exposes students to diverse norms, values, legal and economic systems, and histories - all of which are essential to understanding our world. Some video clips or course materials may contain adult themes or profanity. Components of social structure and social culture are critically examined through sociological theories and concepts including socialization, deviance, social institutions, and social change. Inequalities based on issues such as social class, race, ethnicity, gender, and age will also be analyzed. Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) As a result of taking this course, students will demonstrate their competence in the subject matter and mastery of the concepts specific to the following as evidenced by (1) examinations; (2) written essays/papers; and (3) transformed behaviors and attitudes apparent in observed student classroom behaviors and discussions: Define and describe sociology as a field of study and explain sociological perspective. Distinguish the relationship between sociology and other social sciences. Identify the significant research methodologies and evaluate their relevance and use in sociology. Identify key theorists of sociology and the major sociological paradigms including the areas of study of these paradigms: structural-functionalism, social conflict, and symbolic interaction. Evaluate the concepts of culture and structure of societies and their components; and their application in the study of groups, societies, and individuals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
