Society is comprised of institutions such as the family, religion, mass media and education, as well as rules, customs, laws and ideologies. Embedded within society are structural inequalities related to gender, class, ethnicity, and colonialism. Using what has been termed "the sociological imagination", this course looks at how we are influenced by these aspects of society and how in turn we shape society through our actions.
SOC 100 is an approved Self and Society course for Cap Core requirements.
