SOC 101 – Introductory Sociology – Fall 2019 SLN 76821 – TTH 12-1:15 PM – MUR 201 Introduction : Welcome to SOC 101! I hope you will find the course material both interesting and applicable to your life. We look forward to working with you this semester. Please don’t be daunted by the length of this syllabus. Just think of it as a reference guide for the course. I make all my course syllabi this detailed – which causes them to be long - because I try to anticipate in advance what questions my students will have and then answer them up front, in the syllabus. In another sense, the syllabus is also a contract between you and me. It states (a) what I will do, as the course Instructor, (b) what the TAs will do, (c) what you must do, as a student enrolled in the course and (d) the policies and timetable to which all of us must adhere.
