Introduction to Sociology: The Individual and Society
|Number of hours||45hrs|
Students are introduced to Sociology and its contribution to the understanding of social life and society. The objective is to help students acknowledge that individuals are social beings. This means, among other things, that an individual's experience, actions and identity are conditioned by culture, the lifelong process of socialization, social affiliation, the social construction of gender, and social definitions of deviant behaviour. Students learn about the sociological perspective and use concepts and theories to describe social reality.
