Sociology in Your Life

From what you have learned thus far in the introduction to sociological class, write a 3 page essay to describe succinctly how Sociology is relevant in both understanding and predicting your own personal, academic or professional life (in future).
Choose two main topics covered in class, such as culture, socialization, deviance, social class, race and ethnicity, gender, and etc. Thoroughly discuss each topic. Use three concepts, theories, or models we learned when you discuss each topic (six concepts, theories or models for two topics), clearly explain what the concepts mean, and how they can be used to help you better understand your own life.
For example, if you choose the topic of social class, you can discuss your family’s social class position and how it has affected you (for example, health, education, life styles, political view and etc) and may continue to affect you in the future. You may use the concepts in your discussion like: social class, intergenerational mobility, power, prestige, or the six-tier class model. If you choose the topic of gender, you can discuss the socialization on gender you experienced from schools, mass medias, and families, and how it has affected you personally such as major choice and future plan. You may use the concepts like doing gender, socialization, discrimination, glass ceiling, and etc.
