What Makes This an Honors Course?

Honors allows students the opportunity to deeply engage on topics of deviance, education, religion, social class, global inequity, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, population and health, and other issues that directly impact our daily lives. Besides learning the historical roots of sociological theory, students apply research and discussion strategies to gain insight into current events that often trouble us as a society. The course is designed to be highly interactive, incorporating shared learning experiences through a variety of active experiments and exercises to uncover social patterns of behavior.
