Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

The goal of SOC 2024 is to inform, challenge, and empower students as they become intellectual thinkers and active agents of social change. This text facilitates the thought process by asking students to constantly apply what they know about the real world. Within the text, features such as “Did You Know?” and “SOCThink” lead students to apply difficult concepts to their own lives and experiences. In this way, academic sociology becomes personal and accessible. 

Today’s students are already so attuned to social issues, whether via social media, parents, classmates, or a whole host of agents of socialization, that they now step into the classroom with opinions and curiosity about inequalities to a degree that might have been rare even 10 years ago. Often, a well-thought-out and, inadvertently, sociological, conversation will develop in class.

Hundreds of updated examples, research citations, and photographs make SOC 2024 Release even more timely and engaging.
