The topic of social inequality has recently garnered much public attention. As a topic of scientific study, social inequality has a long and rich history and, in one way or another, continues to underlie most sociological inquiry. In this course, you will gain a broad overview of social inequality by learning about the main theories and empirical findings provided by classical and current sociological research. By the end of the course, you will not only be able to distinguish and describe the many different forms that social inequality takes in today's society – inequality in social class, income, wealth, education, race, or gender – but also understand some of its most important causes and consequence. That is, where does inequality come from and what does it do? You will also develop an understanding of the dynamics of social inequality as you learn how inequality shapes the life-course of individuals and families and how inequality is transmitted across generations. Finally, this course will provide you with a broad and international perspective on how inequality is influenced by a variety of factors, from neighborhoods, to national policies and institutions, to global forces. The overriding aim is that you will gain a clear understanding of one of today's most urgent social challenges.
