Analysis of College Enrollment In the United States, percentages of college enrollment of high school graduates from 1990 to 2009 varied in many ways. Sociological reasoning has played a role in each year pertaining to gender and race. Lifestyles and society itself differed during the years 1990 and 2009. The data directly reflects this reasoning because it shows increasing values from 1990 to 2009. The graph demonstrates ways in which sociological patterns can change through college enrollment of each year. The change in total population for 1990 to 2009 showed an increasing pattern. The total population of students enrolled for 1990 was sixty percent. In 2009, the total population of students enrolled was seventy percent. Therefore, the difference of total population was ten percent. This change shows that the race and gender of the students affects the total population. One can infer that the roles of society changed from 1990 to 2009 because more students, regardless of race or gender, enrolled in college. Gender can play many roles in the population of society. The role of gender for college enrollment demonstrates increasing values for both males and females. In 1990, the male enrollment for enrollment was fifty-eight percent and sixty-six percent in 2009. The female enrollment for 1990 was sixty-two percent and seventy-four percent for 2009. The male population shows an eight percent difference while the female population shows a seventy-four percent difference. This information shows that though each gender had increasing values, males were enrolled in college more often than females were. The percentage of females enrolled in each year was greater than the percentage of males enrolled in each year. This fact suggests that females were more dominant and competitive in the job field than males. Race is a crucial aspect for many parts of society. Sixty-three percent of whites were enrolled in 1990 and seventy-one in 2009. Forty-seven percent of blacks were enrolled in 1990 and seventy percent in 2009. Just forty-three percent of Hispanics were enrolled in 1990 and fifty-nine percent in 2009. There was an eight percent difference in the white students enrolled from 1990 to 2009, which was the least difference out of all the races. The black students enrolled had a twenty-three percent difference from 1990 to 2009, which was the greatest difference of all the races. The Hispanic students enrolled had a sixteen percent difference from 1990 to 2009. In both years, whites had the greatest percentage of enrollment and Hispanics had the least. For every race there was a steady increase of enrollment percent for each year. Because whites had a much higher enrollment rate in 1990 than the other races, this

Politics, Government, and Military is a conflict theory because of the issues that’s being created in today’s society. Each of these categories all is in involved with obtaining one thing which is power. Politics has been an issue since the Golden Ages where democracy would get their kings killed to have more power. Government has been a conflict as well because of the secrecy and conspiracies that has happened throughout time. Military is a problem because many are fighting for…
STIs we learned about during awareness week have influenced me to maintain a safe monogamous relationship with my boyfriend.
I found this paper to be extremely easy to write. There is no topic easier to talk than yourself. The hardest part about writing this paper was keeping it within the maximum length in which I have gone over by two pages. Sociology of human sexuality has been an excellent class for my personal and sexual development.

Social Identity: “Who Am I?”
‘Who am I?’ It’s a simple question, yet one people don’t actually give much thought. When presented this question, I was actually slightly stumped, but through the perspective of sociology, I was able to narrow it down and come up with an accurate answer. While the perspective of sociology only captures the surface level answers to this question, it still helped me to quickly and clearly define who I am. Using sociology, I was able to answer…

The Effects of Media on the Teenage Culture
Whether some people notice it or not, the media, that surrounds us every day, no matter where we may be, effects each an every one of us in one way or another. Not all of the effects of media are bad, but there are points in which is may harm someone’s health or perspective of the world which they live in.

practice is contained in this paper based on the information gleaned from Lee’s article Eating Christmas in the Kalahari. I list excerpts from the article and our textbook to illustrate my views. Also, I address how the tribe is an agent of socialization and is a representation of Gemeinschaft. I talk about the difference between mechanical social solidarity and organic solidarity and how it relates to the tribe and values like humility. Status is also mentioned in this paper both how the bushmen view…
Socialization and Functionalism

Socialization is a very important part of everyone’s life, whether a person knows it or not.
It determines how we become who we are, how we fit into society, and how we act. It sets
standards and appropriate behaviors within our society. Socialization is a constant process where
an individual receives and internalizes an identity and learns behaviors…

When I describe a person who is classified the same as my ethnicity, Japanese people are categorized as one of the Asia countries. According to the text book, in the U.S. census, Koreans, Filipinos, Chinese, Japanese, and Malaysians come from very different cultures, but are identified as Asian Americans. Compared to the United States, these countries that are identified as the Asian region have been recognized as countries for long time; therefore, there are many varieties of cultures that may…
I did not take part in this experiment. I follow the rules set forth by society. I don’t like to draw extra attention to myself or make others feel uncomfortable. I did talk to the bosses at my work, at a grocery store, to see if I could do something out of the norm. The night managers were ok with it, the day managers, however, did not like the idea of me studying the reactions to customers. They wanted me to keep work and school separate. This is a good example of how people follow the norms…
Government isn’t free
The video that was required to watch was about how our government is trying to prevent monopolies. They is turn have many businesses that are regulated monopolies and so they are supported by the taxpayers when they are not profitable. They use their authority (power recognized by people) to have a monopoly (complete control over a market) over different aspects of people’s lives and it is wrong. America is supposed to be free and capitalist not controlled and socialist. America…
