From the Instructor:
Hello! Thank you for registering for SOC 205. Social Change in Societies introduces students to major sociological concepts, theories, and research from a macro-level and global perspective, focusing on how and why cultures, social structures, institutions, and group behavior change over time. This course uses the sociological perspective to help students identify the causes and consequences of social change across institutions, including the economy, politics, family, education, religion, healthcare, and media, in addition to trends in urbanization, population, the environment, and social movements.By raising awareness of how social forces shape people's lives, this course improves students' abilities to evaluate patterns and processes in the world, from local communities to the global economy, as well as highlighting how they too can be agents of change. I hope that you will enjoy the course. The content will become available the first day of the class. Be sure to get the books for the course and begin reading the introduction. Best wishes, Dr. Kim Smith
