This course is an interdisciplinary study of gender.
Emphasis is placed on the theoretical approaches
to studying gender. These approaches include
examining the impact of race/ethnicity in gender
roles, socialization of men and women, and the
role of gender in major institutions (for example,
the family, media, and education). This course is
designed for developing critical thinking skills in
exploring issues of gender through feminist analysis
of structures of privilege and oppression. This course
will be useful for those considering careers in the
social sciences, social work, teaching, counseling,
and nursing. (FT) AA/AS; CSU; UC; C-ID SOCI 140.
