Courses bearing the Institutional and Cultural Systems (S) designation focus on human society and its attempts to attain goals valued collectively. Special emphasis is placed on developing a better and more critical understanding of the institutions and cultural systems that play an increasingly significant role in contemporary life.
Students can understand, evaluate, and produce claims about institutional systems, both formal and informal, generated by analysis of those systems, using statistical work on qualitative or quantitative data or comparative analysis.
