Academic Course
Prerequisite: 3.0 credits of first-year studio and 1.0 credit of first-year liberal studies, including the first year writing course with a minimum passing grade of 60%, and an overall average of 60%.
This course introduces students to basic concepts and methods used in the social sciences. An important goal of studies in the social sciences is to understand the actions and ideas of society and culture. In this course we will examine, on the one hand, the relationship between human behaviour and subjectivity and, on the other, social and cultural differences that transcend and shape personal experience in our rapidly changing world.
Anti-requisite: Students who previously took SOSC 2B01: People, Culture and Social Worlds: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology may not take SOSC 2B01: Introduction to Social Science: People and Social Worlds for further credit.
