SOC 1020 - Globalization–The Transformation of Social Worlds

Credits: 3

Description: This course focuses on the causes and consequences of globalization from a sociological perspective. Students learn the main theoretical perspectives in sociology (e.g., functionalism, conflict theory, symbolic interactionism) and explore how these theories explain various aspects of globalization. Students learn how to use their sociological imagination, which allows people to look at private experience and link it to broader social forces. This course emphasizes the ways in which globalization affects various societal bodies such as economic, political, medical, and religious institutions. The course also explores how globalization relates to social processes such as culture, migration, technology, social movements, crime, and war.
