Query:   At the University of Arizona we offer a course entitled "Individuals and Society" as part of a university wide general education requirement. It is mostly taken by first-year students. Other departments (Cog Sci. and Psychology for example) offer versions of the course as well based on their core content. For lack of a better way to explain it, I've been calling i "Linguistics Lite". We offer this class and Intro to Linguistics for Non-Majors as well that is much more substantitive. I would like to get in contact with others who are teaching this type of class. Thanks!
