I NTRODUCTION   TO  S OCIOLOGY   Sociology 100: Sections: 0601-0609 Fall 2011 C OURSE  D ESCRIPTION This course is designed to be a broad introduction to the field of sociology. We will encounter some of the most influential theories used by sociologists to think about the social world, and many of the methods sociologists employ to investigate it. We will discuss and acquire a familiarity with the concepts sociologists typically use in their work. For instance, students will gain an understanding of what is meant by culture and how culture is different from social structure . As the semester unfolds, we will gain a familiarity with how sociologists take up the issue of inequality, with particular emphasis on those inequalities pertaining to race, class, gender, and sexuality. This is a CORE Distributive Studies course (Area D: Social and Behavioral Sciences). Distributive Studies courses are designed to ensure you will take a look at several different academic disciplines and the ways they create and analyze knowledge about the world (see the CORE website at http://www.ugst.umd.edu/core/ ).
