Sociology is the study of group behavior. What role does a person's culture play in shaping their values and the choices that she or he makes? Why did so many German people in the 1930’s and 1940’s follow the Nazi party? Why are females living today in the United States more likely than males to earn high grades and go to college?

These are the types of questions that we will consider in this class. Bring your curiosity and critical thinking skills and be prepared to be surprised.
