SOCI 212 - Social Class: Get Ahead/Fall Behind

2.00 credit hours
Social class impacts every aspect of life-from food choices, to college attendance, career options, good health, vulnerability to crime, happiness, life span, and on. Most importantly, it impacts the chances for getting ahead in society or falling behind. The social causes and personal consequences of class in American society are examined through a discussion of key concepts and theories, a cultural and structural tour through the class system, an examination of social mobility, and a debate on possible solutions to the problems of growing inequality.

Cardinal Directions Designation(s): Social Science, U.S. Power Structures.
