Socialization is the process by which individuals develop into social beings. Examines various theories of socialization and human development. Explores the role played by social structure and institutions in the integration of the individual into society.
This course combines both humanistic (philosophical) and social science (sociological, social-psychological, and anthropological) perspectives on the social nature of human individuals as persons. Our primary focus will be the nature of humans as they are shaped by history, family, and the surrounding cultural/social environment(s) as well as how people as individual agents negotiate and modify the world around them, up-close and from a distance.
