  • Social Forces: An Introduction to Sociology

    Social forces constrain and empower us, bond us together and push us apart. Sociology explores the workings of societies large and small: nations, organizations, communities, families, and other groups. How do societies shape action and identity, and why are social pressures so hard to defy? How do societies distribute wealth and power, and why do inequalities so often coalesce around race, ethnicity, class, and gender? How do established practices persist, and when do movements arise to challenge them? Examining such themes across a range of issues and topics, this course provides a springboard for future study throughout the social sciences.

  • An Environmental Sociology for a Rapidly Warming World

    Environmental problems are rooted in societies’ complex and changing relationship with the natural world. Understanding those environmental problems, let alone solving them, requires careful investigation of nature-society interactions. Through lectures, readings, discussion, and written work, students will examine the social and historical foundations of contemporary environmental problems and societal efforts to address or resolve those problems. Building on these foundations, we will explore the social dimensions of three (interrelated) “environmental grand challenges”: curbing climate change, preparing for and responding to environmental disasters, and building sustainable cities. Through all of these challenges, questions of environmental inequality and environmental racism loom large.

  • Unequal From Birth: Child Health From a Social Perspective

    Why are the children of immigrants so healthy? How do experiences in families, schools, neighborhoods and the health care system produce unequal health? What are the consequences of health for the economic and social welfare of individuals and populations? We will read, discuss and evaluate social science evidence to understand how social and economic inequalities produce and result from health inequalities among youth. Attention will be given to both industrialized and developing societies, and to potential ways that social policies can equalize children's health. This course is designed for first-year students and should appeal to a variety of interests, including social justice, medicine, research and law. Enrollment limited to 19 first year students.

  • Theory and Practice of Engaged Scholarship

    Efforts are underway across university and college campuses -- in the United States and globally -- to increase opportunities for engaged learning and research. What is engaged scholarship and how does it challenge (and/or complement) more traditional concepts of scholarship and disciplinary knowledge? What are the ethical, practical, and other challenges associated with community-engaged scholarship? The course will use case studies, field work, team projects, and guest speakers from diverse disciplines and sectors to investigate these and other questions. Limited to 40 students per section.

  • Classical Sociological Theory

    How is modern society organized? What holds society together and what drives social change? Why is there such a large gap between the "modern" ideal of formal equality and the reality of factual inequality? Why do differences of class, race and gender persist? What is power and who has it? These questions have motivated generations of sociologists, but many of the arguments continue to be informed by the foundational classical theorists: Karl Marx, Max Weber, Emile Durkheim and W.E.B Du Bois. Looking at the transformations around them – the rise of capitalism, the modern nation-state, rational bureaucracy, the spread of colonialism, the decline of religion, struggles for emancipation and much more – they developed arguments that allow us to better understand ourselves, our actions, and the contemporary political, economic and social transformations around us. We explore the defining contributions of these theorists and link them to current debates and theories on systemic racism, gender/sex struggles, global inequalities, social movements and democracy.

  • Unstable Times: Migration, Identity and Societal Integration

    This course focuses on the changing experience of immigrants in American society. It builds on the premise that periods of social transformation are central to understanding the process of integration of people moving across borders and settling in particular locales. The course engages theories of immigrant incorporation to examine processes of identity formation and societal integration. The course also considers how immigrant integration is a major force reshaping social and political ideologies as well as how new patterns of exclusion emerge as immigrants confront the denial of resources, opportunities and access to citizenship.

  • Martial Arts, Culture, and Society

    In this upper level undergraduate course for which there are no prerequisites, we consider how sociology, and other social sciences, help us understand martial arts and other bodymindful practices (including yoga!) and how they might inform the social sciences. We consider how these practices, their organizations, and their cultures shape, and are shaped by, different structures of power and privilege. We concentrate on martial arts because they straddle such an important axial dimension of society around violence. Enrollment limited to 20.

  • First-Generation College Students: A Sociological Perspective: A Sophomore Seminar

    Colleges have expanded their focus on diversity to include the social class origins of prospective students. One consequence is the emergence of the notion of first-generation college students: those who are the first in their families to attend college. We examine the challenges facing first-gens as they pursue higher education, focusing on two sources of difficulty: gaining admission and acclimating oneself to college, both academically and socially.Our goals are two-fold: (1) To understand the social barriers, compromises, and internal conflicts that first-generation college students face, and, (2) consider how institutional and structural forces impact and shape these students.

  • A Hip Hop Companion to Race and Ethnicity

    This course investigates racial and ethnic discrimination and inequality through sociological texts and Hip-Hop. Despite their different expressions, both forms of social interpretation have long addressed the issue(s) of racial and ethnic discrimination and inequality thus providing excellent complementary sources to answer key queries related to race and ethnicity. How are race and ethnicity (re)constructed and subjectively experienced? What mechanisms underpin and reinforce racial and ethnic stratification? How do race and ethnicity intersect with other dimensions to produce differential outcomes? These are questions we will address in this seminar, resorting to sociological texts, Hip-Hop artistry, and our own collective thinking.

  • Power, Organizations, and Culture

    This seminar addresses a number of topics in macrosociology. Our goal is less to provide a thorough overview of the topics—i.e., power, culture, and organization—than to engage a select group of late 20th/early 21st century debates and scholars asking: What are they trying to explain? Why does it matter? Are their arguments convincing? Why or why not? Students will be evaluated on the basis of task-specific memos designed to build practical skills (e.g., diagram an argument, develop a typology, decide whether a correlation is causal or spurious, provide a peer review of an article, conduct an interview, etc.).

  • Directed Research Practicum - MSAR Students Only

    The Directed Research Practicum is a one semester course taken in conjunction with an on- or off-campus research internship. The course consists of a directed reading of methodological texts and research articles selected by the student and the faculty director that are directly relevant to the methodological issues/challenges encountered in the internship. The student and faculty director will meet weekly to review the readings. The practicum may include written assignments, literature reviews, and data analysis exercises. Faculty directors need not be involved with the actual internship work, unless the student is working on the faculty member’s research project.
