Social Theory (SR381; SSP401)

This course has two central goals.  First, to expose students to some of the most influential theoretical ideas in sociology.  To accomplish this goal, we will focus on understanding the differences between several classical theoretical traditions, their strengths, and their weaknesses.  Second, to help students learn to apply social theory to contemporary sociological research and problems.  To accomplish this goal, we will introduce ways theory can be used to answer questions and problems societies face today, and learn how to use classical theory to build new innovative theories of our own. This course is taught both at the undergraduate (Development of Social Theory; SR381) and graduate (Proseminar in Social Theory; SSP401) levels.
