Social Inequality in America


Americans face different challenges and opportunities that depend on a variety of characteristics, including race, class, gender, and sexual orientation. This class examines these intersecting categories from a sociological perspective - not simply as ways to classify people, but as social constructions that help to explain social inequality. Students will examine these systems in a variety of institutional contexts, such as popular culture, family life, education, the criminal justice system, and the labor force. No prerequisites. NOTE: This is an introductory-level course ideal for students who have not taken intro-level coursework in sociology or related fields such as WGSS OR AFAS yet; it is therefore reserved for first-year and sophomore students. The enrollment cap will be set to 0, and the department will admit students in the appropriate order off the waitlist.
