Sociology is most powerful when applied in the context of what real people do and how they live. Students taking this course typically choose it as an elective for a very specialized degree, from Business Administration to Information Systems to Interior Design. This final assignment will ask students to draw both upon those sociological topics they found most interesting throughout the course, but also to reflect on how their acquired appreciation of those topics have or might affect and inform their core studies and personal and professional interests.
By successfully completing this assignment, students will demonstrate:
the ability to draw connections between formal sociological theory and concepts and real-world personal experience;
the acquisition of their sociological imagination by indicating an awareness of the relationship between personal experience and the wider society; and
a proficiency in integrating sociological concepts and perspectives into a personal narrative.
