SOCI 3800: The Sociology of Gender (3)

Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0

This course considers issues of gender from a sociological perspective. Gender plays an important part of our lives as individuals, but also structures life within U.S. society. We will focus on gender socialization, practices, and inequalities in the contemporary United States. Specifically, we will examine the influence of gender in interpersonal relationships, at work, in education, in families, and in other areas of social life. Although this course is primarily about gender, we will examine how masculinities and femininities are shaped by other social factors such as race, class and sexual orientation.
