SOC-387 Modern Sociological Foundations

Provides a foundation for an in-depth analysis of social structures. Using the enduring constants of sociological theory such as macro versus micro analysis, agency versus structure, consensus versus conflict and cultural versus economic factors, the course guides students through the study of the classical formulations of modern sociological theory by examining the works of Karl Marx, Max Weber, Emile Durkheim and Talcott Parsons.

Advisory: This is an upper-level course. Students should have knowledge equivalent to an introductory sociology course.
