The Sociology course presents sociology as the behavioral science of groups, communities, and societies. The process of socialization, norms, folkways and mores, scientific research, social behavior, social institutions, culture, population, minorities, and changes to the informal and formal structure of the society are explored in depth. Students are led through a series of study units where they apply research strategies to the detailed examination of sociological data and statistics from numerous studies by various United States federal agencies.
