SOCI 3196: Sociology of Education

Faculty: Kimberly Goyette,

Spring 2007

Main goals of the course:
In this course, students apply principles in sociology through the study of education. The primary focus of the course is on the ways that educational systems both maintain and challenge social inequality. Students will discuss the ways that education differentially allocates resources based on race, class, and gender. Students will also examine the role of education as a socializing institution. Some of the questions addressed throughout the course are: What consequences does schooling have on life chances? How much do race, class, and gender affect schooling experiences? How do schools influence ideas about individuals’ roles in society?
