SOC 492

Current Social Issue Focus

This course offers students a deep dive into the sociological parameters of a current social struggle. The instructor will select an ongoing contention in society, and through focused reading, discussion, and critical thinking assignments, each student will develop their own original, evidence-based analysis of the drivers, dynamics, and possible outcomes of that contention. Through intensive focus on one case students will deepen their mastery of theoretical, methodological, empirical, and ethical issues in social scientific research.
