Race Class and Gender

The objective of this course is to introduce students to the multi-faceted issues of “race,” class, and gender in this nation and throughout the world.  Surrounding race we will be discussing issues such as discrimination, stereotyping, segregation, consequences and causes of racism, as well as focusing on institutional racism.  For class, we will focus on social stratification, the minimum wage, welfare, and poverty.  Finally, for gender we will focus on sexism, images of women in the media, the role of women, women in the workforce, and finally the theoretical perspectives of feminism.
