This introductory course aims to provide students with key sociological concepts in order to ask critical questions at society. Students will be provided with a survey of the discipline and explore major topics that speak to everyday life experiences. Both global and local perspectives will be used to illustrate different ways of understanding society and social structures. By the end of the course, students will gain a better understanding of how our everyday lives are affected by social factors such as family, class, gender, religion, education, race and ethnicity. Furthermore, studying sociology offers us different ways to understand changing developments in the world around us. One example can be how talking on mobile phones triggers sociological questions that address new communication technologies, migrant labour, global warming, intimacy issues and cultural etiquette. Key topics for this introductory course include global stratification, culture, deviance and crime, sex and gender, marriage and families, cities and urbanization.
