SOC 3540 Social Stratification


This course examines stratified inequality in the U.S. across race, gender and social class lines, including the distribution of power in its multiple forms. This course also considers how themes of social class and concepts of social inequality are (re)produced in the media, art, music and literature. The aim of this course, in short, is to provide a concrete sense of what it means to talk about structured inequality, to recognize our personal role/position in our stratified society, and to consider acting as change agents who reduce social inequality. Prerequisite(s): SOC 1010 
Credits: 3.0
