Welcome to the
Sociology 131 Home Page!
This is an introductory sociology course that makes students aware intellectually, emotionally, and experientially
of the social forces that impact their life. Teaching and learning in the context of this class are multidimensional.
Students learn about social forces through lecture, role play, discussion, movies, experiments, and fieldwork.
Through these alternative pedagogical strategies, this class works as a learning community to explore the causes
of inequality, the roots of social structure, and the construction of our individual identities. The goals of this
course are to convey basic substantive knowledge from several areas of sociological in which they live.
