#0146 Sociology

Grades 10-12 / 1 Semester Course – 1.0 credit

Do eyes and facial expression reveal a person’s true thoughts? Why do social groups often dislike each other? Does television lead people to violence and reduce their attention span? What causes prejudice? These and other questions are answered in Sociology. This class will focus on how people behave in groups. Films, simulations and role play activities help students develop social skills and knowledge that is essential for dealing with others.

Rationale: Sociology is recommended for students contemplating a career in business, social work, law enforcement, social and/or market research or any other occupation involving interpersonal contact. Skills acquired in this course and knowledge of group dynamics provides a firm foundation for future study and real life applications.
