Section Description

This Introductory Sociology course will be taught entirely online. In this course, which introduces students to the systematic study of social behavior and social order, the main objective will be to acquaint students with a new way of looking at the social world, using a sociological lens. We will analyze critically the role of race, class, gender, education, and other factors that influence experience. What makes sociology unique is not necessarily the subject matter that it examines, but the perspective with which it approaches the subject. In this way, sociology is different from other social sciences because it offers social explanations of what groups of people do and why. As such, we focus on group patterns rather than on individual motivations and differences.

Section Expectation

Students will need to devote several hours per day to the course, as it is a 15 week course condensed into a four-week period.


The course will require a main textbook and possibly a second book of readings or online readings, as well as an online code for web-based homework assignments. There will be weekly multiple choice exams. There are no discussion sections or essay exams. There may be required discussion posts or responses.
