Students will be introduced to the core concepts and theories of sociology, be challenged to look at research evidence, think analytically and dig into the complex patterns of social interaction that make up our everyday world. This class will have a sub-focus on higher education. Examples in class and optional readings will highlight the social forces that affect college admissions, what is taught, and student experiences. Blackboard: Our class meetings are supplemented with a course website that will allow you to access important information and study told such as PowerPoint presentation, chapter outlines, assignments, and announcements. You can access Blackboard from the Queens College homepage via the “Quick Links” heading on the main page → “Online Student Services,” and then clicking on the “Blackboard” tab.
