SOC 120 - Perspectives of Sex & Gender

Unit(s): 3.0

Advisory: ENGL 035 or ENLA 100 or appropriate placement; READ 043 or appropriate placement
Transfers to: UC, CSU

In this course we will explore how gender shapes our lives and the world around us. Using a sociological perspective, we will examine gender as a social construction rather than a simple biological difference. Topics to be covered may include cultural ideas of gender, gender and the economy, politics, the media, families, and education. This course is designed for students who want to learn more about the social connections of gender and how the importance of gender differences are strengthened in our society today.
