LASS 820 - Individual & Society

3 credits
An examination how the individual person is related to society, considering the ways in which society is a separate reality that regulates and even defines the personality and identity of the individual person. After covering some introductory material on culture, definitions of situations, social location, socialization, and deviance, a few sociological works are examined in depth that discuss such subjects as street gangs, ethnicity, social mobility, suicide, morality instincts, and the nature of the self. How the individual can be free in the context of the constraints of society is a major issue addressed within the course.
