IES 102 - Social Construction of Difference


Exploring the social construction of race, class, gender, sexuality, and disability, students will examine how systems of stratification are formed, perpetuated, and interconnected through language and social institutions, such as schools, public policy, and media. Students will also consider how individuals might, within institutional contexts, play a transformative role in the social construction of difference. Some sections may be restricted to IES majors and IES and SEED minors only. (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
