This course covers all of the substantive material that is usually taught in an introductory one-semester college course on Sociology. Our goal is to prepare you to pass the College Board’s CLEP examination and obtain college credit for free.

The CLEP examination emphasizes basic facts and concepts as well as general theoretical approaches used by sociologists on the topics of institutions, social patterns, social processes, social stratifications, and the sociological perspective.
