SOC-349 Social Stratification

This course examines the different ways in which people use resources and ideas to dominate each other. Students consider how this occurs in several different areas of social life, including economics, race relations, organizations, occupations, gender relations, age relations, and globalization. In short, the course focuses on the causes and consequences of social stratification. Each student will complete a project that explores one organization's stratification dynamics in depth using ideas and approaches from the course.
