SOC 4512 - The Human Mosaic

3 Credits

The United States has often been referred to as a melting pot. A better metaphor is that of a cultural mosaic that has been pieced together to create the social structures and institutions that make American society unique. In this class, issues of diversity in society are addressed by examining the assumptions, values, and preconceptions by which members of diverse cultural backgrounds understand themselves and others.  Categories of race, ethnicity, social class, gender are analyzed from a micro, macro and institutional perspective.
