SOCIOLOGY - 1 SEMESTER, ½ CREDIT, GRADES 10, 11, 12
Sociology is the study of human behavior and relations in groups. This course will focus on the history and development of this social science, and how it particularly relates to you as young adults attempting to make sense out of the society you live in and how you fit in. Primary focus is on human behavior in group situations such as society, family, religion, communities and bureaucracies. This involves culture, the socialization process, education, group membership (voluntary and involuntary), social stratification and racial/ethnic groups.
This course provides an in-depth study of current national and trans-national issues and problems. It will focus on the causes, consequences and possible solutions to problems associated with families, education, workplaces, communities and the environment.
