Sociology is the study of society and human behavior, social action, and social change.

Welcome!

Here you will find resources, suggestions, and tips for helping you with your research in this course. Resources in this guide are free to current RCBC students. Please remember if you have any questions on the assignment to first refer to your syllabus and to your instructor.

Here at RCBC we believe in guaranteeing easily accessible, affordable content to benefit the learning experience of our students, enriching them academically, and professionally, in their chosen career path.

Think of a Lib Guide as a digital filing cabinet, full of tools that can do everything from enhance supplementary instruction to provide relevant, topical resources that will benefit a student’s prospective job hunt and professional development well beyond the classroom.

Lib Guides are part of a grant-funded RCBC initiative pertaining to freely available Open Educational Resources (OERs), which aim to change higher education into a comprehensive and diverse experience that works to serve students and ensure success is always within their reach.

RCBC’s Sociology OERs contain videos for your viewership pertaining to sociological topics, and over a dozen digital textbooks available for download.
