Course Description This course intends to help students become more knowledgeable and aware of social phenomena. We will take a novel approach to this goal, looking at a series of social trends to divine their underlying causes and implications. Along the way, we will become familiar with the major concepts and theories of sociology. Meanwhile, the readings and in-class discussions will help us to hone our analytical skills and refine our abilities to communicate our ideas. Readings There is no textbook for this course. Readings will be posted online. Just go to MyUT, My Courses, click on the link for this course; and click on Files. The bibliography at the end of this syllabus lists the sources for those readings. However, it is subject to change. Grading Final grades for the course will be assessed using this scale: A 94-100% A- 90-93% B+ 87-89% B 83-86% B- 80-82% C+ 77-79% C 73-76% C- 70-72% D+ 67-69% D 63-66% D- 60-62% F 0-59% Course Requirements The grade for this course is based on five exams, each worth 20% of your final grade. Each exam will include a mix of multiple choice, short answer and short essay questions. Policies Special Accommodations Please inform me if you have needs that may require special accommodations. Also, feel free to discuss with me any personal issues that may affect how well you do in the course. I will try my best to come up with a way in which you can get the most out of this course.
