SO 101: Introduction to Sociology

Professor: Sue Hudd
Credits: 3

Our society and culture influence who we are, how we feel about ourselves, and how we interact with others. This course investigates the ways in which our social institutions such as the family, the government, politics, religion, health care and others shape our experience. The differences that characterize a stratified society in opportunity, reward, achievement and social class are discussed.

Professor Hudd’s SO 101 course is targeted toward helping students to create linkages between their personal interests and career interests.  We use Malcom Gladwell’s Outliers, along with an introductory text, to explore the concept of success.

  • This course is Freshman only
