Credits: 3
Sociological perspectives are applied to the identification, explanation, and analysis of social problems in American society and in selected world societies. Course content focuses on: 1) examining the major institutions of society-the family, economy, and polity-and how they can perpetuate social problems; and 2) examining inequalities based on class, race, and gender. Specific topics can include poverty, homelessness, racism, sexism, drug abuse, crime, juvenile delinquency, and violence. Normally offered during the summer.
