SOC 111 - Race and Ethnic Diversity (First-Year Seminar)

Four credits
Not Offered 2016-2017

This course provides students with an opportunity to investigate how we learn about race and ethnicity in America today. We will look at how and what parents teach about race and racism to their children and also the role of other agents of socialization - peers, schools, media and neighborhood.  We will also investigate the intersection of racial socialization with gender and social class. We will look at historical and theoretical frameworks for understanding race, racism, race and ethnic identities, and white privilege. The class also offers the opportunity to investigate your own racial socialization and how this has influenced your experiences and ways of seeing the world around you.

Prerequisite(s): Open to First-Year Students only.
Is the equivalent to SOC 234 - Racial and Ethnic Diversity .
Fulfills the First-Year Seminar requirement.

Course may be applied to the American Studies and Anthropology programs.
