High school sociology focuses on many different aspects of human behavior and life. The class covers how ethics vary in different cultures, groups and societies, the cultural trends that affect how society operates, and how to work well with people from different backgrounds.
Students will also learn about the political and economic aspects of sociology in cultures around the world, what stereotypes and prejudices people from other cultures endure, and gives students a clear understanding of how people interact as individuals and in groups on an everyday basis.
In a sociology course, students will be able to compare and contrast their daily lives, cultural norms, and their relationship with family and friends with that of other people from around the globe.
