This course has two required components: 1) weekly seminar sessions (Wed. 1:30-3:20pm) and 2) participation in an off-campus internship.
The main objective of this course is to gain practice in applying sociological concepts and knowledge to your experience in the wider world. Through weekly internship experience, course readings and class discussions, we will think critically about work and work organizations from a sociological perspective. We will examine how work is organized and how we, as workers, fit within the system(s). Your experiences outside of the classroom will help us understand the material inside the classroom. Sociology 404 is a seminar-style class. This means that the majority of course time will be used to discuss the week’s readings and topics. We will also devote considerable time to talking about your internship experiences in relation to the material.
