PSC 402 - Critical Social Analysis


(5-0-5)
Prerequisite: SOC 101 
In this course, we will explore major approaches to the critical analysis of society. Students will be asked to examine how theories of “power,” or “ideology,” for instance, enable them to think differently about current events. In addition, we will read and discuss a few examples of recent critical studies on specific social issues. These issues may include income inequality, environmental crisis, or racism in modern medical practice, for example.  Throughout the quarter, we will evaluate the relationship between critical analysis and social change.
