SOC 280 - Discrimination and Society

3 hours
An examination of the causes and effects of discrimination in U. S. society as it relates to several social identities. The course is based on a sociological principle that discrimination is “constructed”: discrimination as not naturally occurring but as the result of conflict regarding what is normal, what is valued, and what should and should not change in society. Specifically, students will learn how discrimination is 1) socially constructed, 2) maintained by social structures, and 3) experienced in everyday life.

Listed also as BWS 280
