SOA 213 - Sociology of Education (4 Cr.)

(formerly SOC 213) (GCR Social and Behavioral Sciences area)
This course considers education as a social institution, broadly and comparatively. Topics addressed vary by year, but often include the functions of education; links between education and inequality by class and race; cross-cultural variation in primary, secondary, and tertiary education systems; the role of colleges and universities in the United States; and challenges to “mainstream” educational models such as home-schooling movements and critical pedagogies. This class may include a service-learning component. Program faculty.
