|Subject Overview:||This subject explores how society deals with the need for order and the inevitable consequence that deviance and non-conformity will result. Classical and contemporary sociological theories are explored that help explain the nature of social order and crime and deviance. Each theory is developed through grounded examples that can illustrate both its strengths and weaknesses. Topics covered in the course include suicide, industrial disasters, religious cults, sexual assault, racism, terrorism and the witchcraze of the 17th and 18th centuries in Europe.|
|Assessment:||An essay of 2000 words 50% (due mid-semester) and a 2-hour examination 50% (due at the end of semester).|
