Contact Hours Per Week: 3 Lec.
Tostudy community is to study people living in and identifying with a particular place and to give special attention to the type, quality, and basis of their interaction. Such a broad definition includes much of the subject matter of sociology, so it is not surprising that community theory and research have played a major role in the development of American Sociology. Sociology has at its core a foundation for understanding community. This course examines the concept of community, different approaches to understanding community, community and the quality of life, and studying the community.
