You are required to do a sociological analysis of the culture and social structure of an organization in which you are or have been involved - this could be a club, sports team, place of employment, church, etc. - any type of organization.
You should discuss the following points:
Culture: what are the norms, values, symbols of your organization? Depending upon what you choose to write about, you may be able to discuss both material and non-material culture.
Socialization: how are new members socialized into the group or organization, and what are the sanctions invoked when a member does not comply?
Social Structure: what are the roles and statuses in the organization, and how do these interrelate?
Formal vs. informal norms, structure, interactions: again, depending upon your organization, you may be able to identify both formal and informal rules and processes. (Example: what is the formal structure of the organization, or perhaps the formal rules, vs. how do people actually operate or find “informal” ways to deal with situations outside the formal structure?)
