SO 244: Social Stratification

Professor: Sue Hudd
Credits: 3

This course examines systems of inequality and how they grow out of, and are reinforced by, both structural and cultural factors. Topics include: social class, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, the interrelationships of all of these as forces of stratification, and how they are manifested in societal institutions such as the economy, the educational system and the criminal justice system.

  • Service component: In Professor Hudd’s course, students will work through the process of understanding social services by working with a family from the Keefe Community Center, and providing a food basket for that family at the end of the project.
  • This course is offered every semester
