Introduction to Sociology

University of Toronto St. George

Sociologists investigate how social relations shape human behaviour. By systematically observing social milieux, conducting surveys, analyzing official statistics, inspecting historical documents, and carrying out experiments, they analyze the opportunities and constraints that help to make people what they are in different social contexts. This course introduces students to the sociological perspective and sociological methods by investigating a wide range of human behaviours and institutions. Topics include social inequality, race and ethnicity, crime and deviance, families, the mass media, gender and sexuality, and globalization.
