Conference at Metropolitan State

What do Metro-area citizens think about the quality of our public institutions and public officials? This is related to programs such as service learning, and why its important.

Interested? Well there's a conference at Metropolitan State University entitled Uncommon Ground? Metropolitan Perspectives on the Public Good next week where this and many other issues will be discussed.


Take a look at the flyer Metropolitan Perspectives

Welcome

Greetings & Welcome to the website/blog for Sociology 101, Introduction to Sociology. This website is intended to provide you with easy access to class materials and announcements, and to facilitate class communication.

Here is a brief description of the class:
In this course, we will learn the fundamental concepts and ideas used in sociology and importantly, apply this knowledge through investigations of social behavior such as: personal face-to-face interactions, organizations, culture, inequality, and family. In particular, your service-learning site provides one source for our scholarly inquiry. There will be ample opportunities for students to engage in active and independent learning through various cooperative learning activities, such as group discussions, and interactive critique and feedback.
