This course is intended to familiarize students with the sociological perspective. The first unit introduces the contending schools of sociological thought that have evolved to explain the sources of inequality, power, and social change in modern societies. In the second and third units of the course, these clashing perspectives are employed to understand many of the basic processes and institutional features of the United States, including the general character of social stratification, the persistence of poverty, the nature of race relations, the impact of schooling on equality, the extent and type of political democracy, and the distribution of economic resources. While focusing on the contemporary United States, comparative and historical perspectives are also utilized. Grades are based largely on three in-class exams.

Sociology is the systematic study of human behavior, social relationships, and societies. This course will introduce the "sociological perspective" as a tool for understanding the connecitons between the individual's everyday life and larger-scale processes and structures within society. We will focus particularly on various explanations for social inequality in the U.S. and empirical research about such inequality. Specifically, we will examine how social class, race-ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, etc. shape our lives and our social institutions. What you should expect to get out of this course is a critical perspective on social life. You should be prepared to grapple with some issues you've never thought about before (or at least have never thought about sociologically before); be prepared to deal with value judgments, slippery concepts, and some ambiguity. Course requirements include three exams (20% each), two "sociological projects" (20% total), and attendance and participation at the weekly discussion section (20%).

This course will explore the possibilities for building community, giving particular attention to issues of race, ethnicity, gender, and class while acknowledging and addressing existing conflicts. How do we build community in our schools, neighborhoods, and cities comprised of people with perspectives, viewpoints, backgrounds that differ from our own? To what extent do this country's democratic principles continue to bind our society in the face of growing racial and class divisions? This seminar will explore a wide range of questions on inter group and community building, taking into account issues of power, conflict, and competing social interests. Students will be encouraged to bring in personal experience and perspective to enrich the discussion of theoretical readings. Active participation and considerable writing will be required.

The goal of this course is to introduce students to the social history (past and present) of racial minorities in the United States. We will begin by defining the principal concepts that sociologists use in their analysis of race relations. Central to this discussion will be the understanding of "racism" NOT as "prejudice," "ignorance," an "attitude," or a "set of beliefs", but rather as a comprehensive historical system that changes over time. After this theoretical discussion, we will survey the historical experiences of five racial minorities, namely, African Americans, Chicanos/Mexican Americans, American Indians, Puerto Ricans, and Asian Americans. The course will conclude with a discussion of possible solutions to the racial dilemmas faced by the U.S.

In this course we will examine the structure of present-day American society. Using sociological theories, we will analyze some key aspects of this structure, such as race, class, gender, and bureaucratic organization. In addition to studying the theories themselves, we will discuss the practice of sociology as a discipline. We will ask such basic questions as: How do sociologists justify their explanations of social structure? Can we decide which explanations work best, and if so, how? The syllabus will emphasize primary texts, both theoretical and empirical. Students will be evaluated on the basis of exams and a paper.

What enables those with power and privilege to preserve their position? Why is race so important in the USA, and in the world? What does it mean to gender your explanation? When do birthrates decline? What role do others play in making the self? These great questions can't be answered without "theory", without a refined sense of concepts and their relationship to one another and to the "real world". In this course, you will learn about the distinction and importance of theory in both the worlds of learning and of everyday concerns. You will learn about exemplary theorists, including Marx, Weber, Durkheim, DuBois, Mead, Simmel, Dorothy Smith, and others. You'll acquire a greater facility with powerful notions like "class" and "culture", and a greater critical capacity not only to assess the facts, but also the theory that organizes them. Exams, review essays, and class participation serve as the foundation for student accomplishment.

"American Families" offers a sociological overview of U.S. family patterns, discourses, and controversies. What is a family? How do family arrangements and beliefs about what families should be relate to broader social trends? How should we understand historically changing family patterns? Why are family issues so potentially explosive? These are just some of the questions that Sociology 444 tackles. "American Families" is primarily a lecture course, with some films and smaller group discussion. Students will be evaluated by means of two exams and two papers. Class attendance is required and participation strongly encouraged.

When is rape a crime? What is the significance of children's "cooties" games? How do fraternities construct masculinity? In this course we will explore these and/or similar questions with a focus on gender and gender inequality. We will ask: how is gender constructed? What are the main causes and consequences of gender inequality? What are men's and women's experiences of gender? How do race, class, and sexuality interact with gender?

Law and social psychology intersect around issues of norms and justice, and this will be a focus of this course. We shall examine the concepts of norms, responsibility, and justice in both a social psychological and legal context and will look at how findings from social psychology, which is a science, bear on issues that arise in the law, a normative system of social control. We will look at legal processes in general and will consider the roles of different actors in legal systems: civil parties; criminal victims; lawyers; judges; and juries. Focus will be given to the central process of legal systems: the trial; jury selection; eyewitness testimony; the presentation of evidence; jury deliberations; and so on.

This course will examine the role of schooling in reproducing and reinforcing prevailing social, political, and economic relationships. We will focus on how the dominant school culture can marginalize students from different backgrounds and experiences. During the first half of the course we will explore the history of schooling, the interaction of schooling and social stratification, the social organization of schools and classrooms, and the uses of both formal and hidden curriculums. During the second half of the course we will look at contemporary policy issues related to schools and debate the potential of these policies to create social change through schooling. Throughout the course we will view and discuss several relevant films. Students will have a role in the presentation and discussion of assigned readings and will be asked to examine their own educational experiences in order to relate personal experience to the impact of schooling on society.

This course consists of an exploration of contemporary sociological and social psychological approaches to identity. Our quest differs from that of psychology, where individual-centered approaches to identity predominate. Instead, we will explore how the social world provides us with the resources to label others, and how we can account for the differences that may exist between social identity and self-identity. The key questions that we will explore include the following: (1) How do individuals label people who are different from themselves? (2) How do social contexts affect the ways by which individuals locate themselves? and (3) How are social identities constructed and how do they relate to self-identities? Throughout this course we will pay particular attention to race, gender, and sexual orientation as bases for considering identity.
