Sociology 100Y – Online Introduction to Sociology Spring 2011 Instructor: Kristen Budd, M.S. Office Hours: By Appointment Office: Stone 349A E-mail: [email protected] E-mail is my preferred method of contact – please allow at least 24 hours for me to receive and respond to your e-mail. Please include your full name and the class (SOC 100Y or SOC100 Online) in the subject line with each e-mail. ** I am teaching two sections of SOC 100 this semester, one in person and one online. It is EXTREMEMLY IMPORTANT for you to specify your name and SOC100Y or SOC100 Online in the e-mail subject line . This will eliminate any possible confusion between the two courses. This is an introductory course designed to introduce you to the science of studying society. You will get a small taste of many different concepts. In this course, you will learn to: - develop and use a sociological imagination - understand how important culture is to the individual experience - see how we learn how to behave within our own cultures - understand how inequality affects lives and why it persists - explore our most important social institutions and how they affect each other (and us). We will also explore some basic sociological theories and attempt to apply them to these various topics. This course should help you appreciate the incredible variety of viewpoints on all subjects related to the human social experience. This syllabus is your contract for this course. If you cannot see yourself meeting the course requirements detailed in this syllabus and/or keeping pace with the course, I recommend taking an alternate section of SOC 100. REQUIRED TEXT Henslin, James M. 2009. Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach, 10th Edition. Pearson/Allyn and Bacon. ISBN-10: 0205714277 Your textbook is available at the bookstores in town. However, it may be cheaper online used. Try www.gettextbooks.com to get a list of multiple sellers (Amazon.com, Half.com, etc.).

SOC100Y, Spring 2011 2 IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE REQUIRED TEXT 1. While other editions are available, the content does change from edition to edition.

There is a picture of the textbook above and the ISBN number. 3. ** Neither the Instructor nor Purdue University will be held responsible if you use the incorrect edition or incorrect textbook for this course. HOW MUCH TIME TO ALLOW FOR THIS COURSE: Expect to spend as many hours in this course as you would a class that meets 3 hours a week and also has reading assignments and homework. Taking an online course does not mean less work; it just means that you will have more flexibility in your schedule. You will be reading one chapter of the text book each week, checking the website every day or two, taking 12 quizzes, and occasionally doing a writing assignment. There will be two exams – a midterm and a final,
