A. Course Name and Title Course Number: Title: Department/Program: College: Semester/School Year: Instructor: B. COURSE DESCRIPTION: Sociology is not equated with social studies, as claimed by its founding father, Auguste Comte, this discipline is the queen of social sciences, simply because in order to understand society, we need first to equip ourselves with knowledge from economics, history, anthropology and psychology. Sociology, it would seem, is a discipline currently under strain. Never the least controversial of academic subjects, a decade or so ago it was nonetheless popular in terms of student appeal, and apparently in the vanguard of intellectual culture. Sociology is the systematic study of society. At the heart of sociology is a special point of view called the sociological perspective. If in intellectual terms sociology remains just as important as it ever was, it has undergone very considerable changes over recent years. These in some part reflect developments in social theory, but are also bound up with potentially quite profound changes in the object of analysis- the modern social world. This course is divided into four phase; the first part of the course is about the major and modern sociological theories and perspectives, the second part is about the quantitative research method in sociology which includes knowledge on social and inferential statistics, the third part is about qualitative research method which includes cultural studies, ethnography and phenomenology and the last part is more concerned with major social institutions, and as well as family planning.
