Classical social theory is a required introductory course for graduate student sin the Sociology Department. You will study the work of major canonical theorists, such as Karl Marx, Emile Durkeim, and Max Weber (“the Big Three”), as well as other early theorists who are key to contemporary applied sociology, such as W.E.B DuBois and Jane Addams. Upon completing the requirements for this course, you can expect not only to have a solid knowledge of the classical theorists, but also a critical insight into sociology as a discipline. We will discuss how The Canon of sociological theory was and continues to be constructed and its influence on contemporary scholarship.
