SOC 301D - Social Inequalities, 3 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): SOC 100D , SOC 201D  or SOC 210 
Have you ever wondered why some people have more than others, and why these inequalities persist in modern society? This course examines some dominant forms of inequalities, their causes, and some of the social consequences that are adjunct to the process. The course explores the ways in which these impact life in the United States and other nations, and prepares students with some the life skills that will help them cope with these and at the same time make positive changes in their society and the larger global scene. The course covers intermediate level concepts of social inequalities seen from a sociological perspective; forms, causes, and consequences of inequalities; sociological data interpretation; and cross-cultural perspectives on these issues. Social and public policies are also addressed as a necessary corollary to the topics covered in class.
