SGBS 101 - Models of Social Thought

4.00 credit hours
The disciplines of sociology, anthropology and economics gave shape to many of the most fundamental concepts of social thought. The texts in this “gateway” to the Social Sciences focus on specifically social phenomena and the theories, normative and descriptive, that arise from the study of structural realities such as the state, the economy, race, gender and class. This course concludes by considering economics as a “model” social science, testing its methods and how its theoretical commitments purport either to describe or guide social action.

Cardinal Directions Designation(s): Social Science, Ethical Dimensions, U.S. Power Structures.
