SOC 111D: Social-Psychology and Economics: The trouble with how economists think you think

This course will compare and contrast explanations for human behavior; specifically, those derived from economic theory with those from social-psychological research. Rationality, decision-making, happiness, motivation, the persistence of inequality, and evaluation of outputs will be examined. It will also investigate the shortcomings of estimating individual preferences without taking into account macro-level phenomenon, such as hierarchy and justice. For students who lack familiarity with economics, the course will also cover basic economic theory as necessary. The use of economic versus social-psychological theory in determining appropriate public policy will also be explored.

SOC 113D: Sociology of Sport

This course is designed to examine sports from a sociological perspective and to develop a greater understanding of the impact of sports on societies and individuals. We will analyze sports and sporting cultures using several theoretical frameworks such as functionalism, conflict theory, critical theory, feminist theory, and an internationalist perspective. This course will address questions such as: What role do sports have in society? How can we understand the importance societies place on sports? How are social inequalities replicated or challenged through sports? How do sports influence individuals and the construction of a social reality?
