Section Description

COURSE OVERVIEW: The main purpose of this course is to introduce students to the sociological analysis of race and ethnic relations. We will begin by looking at the concept of “race”—what is it? What does it mean to say that race is socially constructed? We will also examine prejudice and discrimination, as well as patterns of ethnic/racial relations. We will then spend the bulk of the course examining ethnic/racial groups within the United States, looking at the histories of European Americans, Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans.
