This has been a very brief introduction to the field of sociology. I hope that you have enjoyed your time getting to learn a little bit about sociology. Once you gain the sociological perspective, you have the ability to look at the world through a new lens. This text that corresponds with my ANSOC-105: Introduction to Sociology is designed to teach students the basic concepts, theories, methods, and perspectives in sociology. A more in-depth analysis of particular subfields, theories, and methods are available in our upper-level courses in the Anthropology+Sociology Department at Roger Williams University.
