Social Inequalities

The Social Inequalities concentration examines how social structural factors, such as age, gender, race, ethnicity, social class, and sexuality relate to power, social status, wealth, income, health and morality. Courses in this area study issues such as poverty, race and ethnic inequality, sexism, age discrimination, neighborhood segregation, labor market processes, and income disparity. This concentration is appropriate for students interested in jobs related to human or social services, nonprofit and community organizations, research and government agencies, and human resources. In addition, this is an excellent concentration for students interested in graduate school in the social sciences.
