Since Sociology is the study of people, we have direct involvement every day in our communities, schools, family, and neighborhoods. Talking to people is a major part of the sociology field. This paper will allow you to broaden your understanding of a particular sociological concept.
Written Assignment 1 will require you to interview someone in your community that has dealt with any of the social conflicts that we have discussed in the first half of the term. For example, suicide, bullying, depression, homelessness, discrimination of any kind. These interviews can be done in person, via computer or other means of communication, but a one-on-one interaction is necessary. As a last resort, if you cannot find someone to interview, you can also choose a profession that is front and center with current social conflict and discuss your choice in detail to include sociological perspectives and or other course related material that you see fit. This is an introduction course, so you have some leeway with your direction of your paper, but please make sure you relate it to the material in the first 4 units.
