Sociology

SOC 437 (W) Seminar: Political Sociology (1)

In this course students engage in qualitative and quantitative research and analysis of topics and issues related to the political dimensions of society. Both "classical" political sociology, which treats socio-political institutions as the product of social relations, processes, and interactions, and contemporary perspectives which emphasize the constructionist and/or cultural dimensions of political power, will be applied critically to topics including democracy, citizenship, social movements, and social welfare.
