SOC 270 - Community Studies

3 Cr.
Contact Hours Per Week: 3 Lec.

To study 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. Urbanization and urban growth have occurred more rapidly during the 19th and 20th centuries than in any other period. The globe is changing from a predominately rural world to one where the majority of us live in urban places. This is a survey course in that a broad perspective of community studies is covered. This includes recognizing the rural past, historical changes over time and place, and current trends through sociological theory and research.
