SOC 018A - Classical Sociological Theory

Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring
This course provides a foundation in the classical tradition in sociological thought, and will cover the 19th through the early 20th century. The pivotal contributions of such theorists as Karl Marx, Max Weber, and Emile Durkheim provide the core of the focus. Late 19th- and early 20th-century theorists who followed in their footsteps show the continuity of sociological thought and its connection to social issues of the day. One of the important themes of the course is the relevance of social theory to understanding contemporary social issues. As a required component of the major sequence, the course includes an emphasis on written work and oral participation as essential aspects of intellectual growth and development.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
