In this course for the Sociology Major we will examine the main strands of sociological thought and identify how the key thinkers, ideas and practices in the development of sociology can be used to address contemporary social problems. Lectures will focus on the writings of leading social theorists and sociologists, and their contribution to the development of a distinctly sociological theory and practice. Seminars will have a 'practical turn' as we consider the ideas and practices of these scholars and apply them to seeking solutions for contemporary social problems.
