SOC 2200 - RACISM IN AMERICA


This course examines the diversity of race and ethnicity in the U.S. Race is one of the most critical, divisive, and defining issues in the United States today.  Using a sociological approach, this course treats race and ethnicity as social constructs that permeate social life, are entrenched in social structures and institutions, and change over time and place. The course examines how the construct of race develops in relationship to other systems of social differentiation, including class and gender. We will consider how these coexisting social hierarchies shape identities, determine life chances, establish relationships of marginality and privilege, and generate social stability and conflict.

Credits: 3 cr.
