This course examines social change, conflict, and inequality in modern society. Throughout the course, students will investigate various social issues (e.g.., racism, sexism, heterosexism, agism, and class inequality) drawing on an array of sociological perspectives. While the topics we cover in class may be familiar, the approach to understanding them may not be. Throughout this course, students will assess the potential for individual and collective action to produce social change.
