Section Information for Fall 2022
This graduate seminar is a core course for MA and PhD students devoted to the philosophical, historical, theoretical, and methodological dimensions of public and applied sociology within the United States. It traces the evolution of the field during the 20th century, from its inception in the Chicago School and the studies of W.E.B. DuBois to more recent formulations, as these bear on the interplay between the production of social scientific knowledge and public decisions, debates, and policies, as well as sociologists’ work with civil society and social movements.
Enrollment limited to students with a class of Advanced to Candidacy, Graduate, Junior Plus, Non-Degree or Senior Plus.
Enrollment is limited to Graduate, Non-Degree or Undergraduate level students.
Students in a Non-Degree Undergraduate degree may not enroll.
