Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit : This course is designed as an introduction to the discipline of sociology. Sociology understands and explains human behaviors as a result of social and cultural contexts. Sociologists think that social and cultural contexts play more important role in shaping human behavior than do biological, psychological or economic factors. Although all these factors do play a part, sociologists concentrate on the social and cultural contexts.

Course Aims : Gender stratification, cuts across all aspects of social life, cuts across all social classes, and refers to men and women's unequal access to power, prestige, and property on the basis of their sex.

Gender refers to behavioral differences between males and females that are culturally based and socially learned (Appelbaum & Chambliss, 1997:218). Henslin (1999) argues that in every society, the primary division between people is based on gender.

WorkPlacement   Each class will begin with a lecture that will provide an overview of readings assigned for class. The lecture will be followed by class discussion. Each student is expected to participate in the discussion of each week's readings. Therefore reading assignments should be completed by the date scheduled on the class calendar. University guidelines expect students to spend about 1.5-2.0 hours preparation for every 1 hour of class time; for our course this means 8-10 hours preparation per week. I will limit readings to 5-7 pages on average per session. Attendance is REQUIRED, because during the lectures material will be presented which is not covered in the readings. Lecture contents will be included on exams. Surveys show that students who miss classes have double rate of failure in intro to sociology courses comparing to those students who have not missed a class in the course.
