Course Description

Ever wonder... Why do mothers do more housework than fathers? Why does everyone face the same direction in elevators? Why are some people more likely to engage in "criminal" acts than others? What is affirmative action? In this course we will discuss these questions and many more as we explore the structure of everyday life in the United States and globally.

Each week the professor will lecture Monday and Wednesday from 11-12 and students will attend a one-hour discussion group. Importantly, attendance at all three weekly meetings is expected and required. The professor of this class has a strict policy on make-up exams.
