SOC 333K • Sociology of Gender
8:00 AM-9:30 AM
The course is designed to assist the student in developing an understanding of the social organization of gender. We will examine current differences between males and females in American society in terms of both their public (work, politics) and private (marriage, parenting, sexuality) roles. We will explain the origins of these gender differences through an investigation of the contributions of biology, socialization, and cultural ideology.
