Comparative/Cross - Cultural/Global Studies

In sociology we look beyond our own society to the rest of the world, in order to learn about different cultures and social practices, to understand our own society better, and to become aware of the effects of global forces.  The sociology department offers courses in development, globalization, comparative religions, and the social structures of Latin American and Islamic societies.  Through these courses we study how societies vary due to level of economic development, unique cultures, and relation to other societies in the world.

Course Offerings:
Sociology of Religion 205
War and Society 325
Development and Globalization 361
Globalism and Nationalism 364
Sociology of Islam 362
Comparative Ethnic and Race Relations 461
