BLHS-101: Introduction to the Social Sciences

Course Description:
What does it mean to be a member of a particular society? How is it that individuals both form and are formed by a society? Who exercises power and in what ways? While all Core Courses address these questions in some way, it is especially the social sciences that are designed to explore them in depth. This course introduces students to the basic theories, methods, and particular contributions of anthropology, demography, economics, linguistics, political science, psychology, and sociology in attempting to answer such questions. It will provide students with a better understanding of the social and cultural worlds they inhabit and offer needed tools for analyzing the material covered in other Core Courses as well.
