SOCI214 - Stratification and Inequality

 

This course will critically examine the causes, processes and patterns of social inequality in society. Social stratification explores inequality through the lens of social class, gender, race-ethnicity, sexuality, age, and wellness. Students will use sociological theory and applied research to explore the various ways hierarchies are produced and maintained among people within the social structures such as the economy, religion, education, and family in the United States. Students will also consider the impact of globalization on the distribution of power and access to resources in the United States.
