RFLA 200C 01 - Inequality and Privilege (CRN 10329)


Inequalities of class, race, and gender shape our lives in profound ways. In this course, we will analyze the causes and effects of inequality from a sociological perspective. Why is the gap between rich and poor growing? Is racism disappearing, or just morphing? How common is rape on college campuses? Most importantly, what can be done to mitigate or eliminate harmful inequalities?  This course will teach students to identify patterns of advantage and disadvantage in society. We will examine how institutions and culture shape individual experiences and life chances.
