Sociology, the study of human social behavior will give students a basic overview of how humans interact with one another and behave under given conditions. Humans are quirky beings, and many devote their lives trying to get to the bottom of why humans do what they do. We will discuss the history of sociological theories, social stratification, the development of sociological phenomena, and more. This course will serve as an excellent background for those who wish to explore sociology, philosophy, teaching, psychology, economics, history, or any other subject dealing with human decision-making.
