Course Description

Ever wondered why some countries are rich and others poor? Or why some people believe hard work results in upward mobility and others don’t? To answer these questions, you need to “see” the world sociologically.

In this introductory sociology course, we will explore the concerns of an interconnected global world through classic sociological concepts. Through short lectures, interviews with prominent sociologists and everyday people around the world, you will learn to see your role in the scope of global history.

No previous experience needed.

I actually took this course when it was called Introduction to Global Sociology. They have now broken it into three courses which is an excellent idea because the original course was long and time consuming. I loved this course and the instructor was excellent, a pleasure to listen to, clear and concise. The topic has some tragic case studies of inequity in the world that can be upsetting but through knowledge we will hopefully see the seeds of change, I strongly recommend this three course series.
