MG-GY 9313 Introduction to Behavioral Sciences

3 Credits
This interdisciplinary seminar is limited to doctoral students. The seminar focuses on behavioral sciences, the areas of inquiry relating to the human condition or human behavior. This definition encompasses a wide variety of disciplines, from the social sciences and humanities to a corner of the biological sciences. The fields of study are as diverse as comparative literature, geography, psychiatry and mathematics (to name just a few). The course focuses on sociology, anthropology, history and political science; the emphasis is on sociology. The course explores a number of topics (social order, social solidarity, conflict, social classes, status) that have generated strong interest among social scientists. The course and the final paper pay special attention to the process of developing original theoretical arguments, suitable for empirical exploration.
