SOA 228 - Subcultures and Social Problems (4 Cr.)

COURSE IS FOR STUDENTS IN GOUCHER PRISON EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM ONLY (GCR Social and Behavioral Sciences area)
Course is for students in the Goucher Prison Education Partnership program ONLY. Traditionally associated with youth, subcultures differ from mainstream society in a variety of ways: their norms, values, beliefs, behaviors, and style. Researchers examine how these groups arise as both responses to blocked structural opportunities and attempts to resist mainstream culture and create distinct social identities. This course explores the emergence of subcultures, the construction and maintenance of subcultural identities, perceived connections to social problems and moral panics, and subcultures beyond youth. Special attention is paid to the theory and methods used by researchers in the field.
