The purpose of this class is to help you better understand what it means to be a person. While participating in this class, you will look into the history of sociology and investigate different types of sociological theory.
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to study society as a larger mechanism used for both good and evil. Each will decide, on their own, whither they have the ability to create an act of change or simply be directed by it.
