Sociology explores social life, social processes and social organization using insights from sociological theory and research. This research guide was designed for the students of Dr. Richard Duque's SOC 101: Survey of Sociology.
This course helps students cultivate a sociological imagination that allows them to critically examine and engage the social world. Sociology links individual experience with wider societal influences, develops intercultural awareness and promotes civic engagement to create a more just society.
