The goal of the course is to familiarize students with the discipline of sociology, its core concepts, sociological perspectives, and the way sociological analysis is conducted. This course is designed to acquaint students with compelling social issues in society and discuss the various contributions sociology has made to the understanding of complex social issues. The course aims to focus on understanding social issues at global, national, and local levels. It will help you, the students, develop a critical lens to understand these issues at various (temporal and spatial) levels and determine how and why a particular set of populations are affected by challenges more than others. The course addresses social, economic, racial, and gender inequality that has historically existed in society.
