SOCY 31 Youth and Society

This course explores central features of children’s preschool, preadolescent, adolescent, and college peer cultures. We will discuss what it means to study youth from a sociological lens and research methods for doing so. Specific topics may include: historical views of childhood; how gender, socioeconomic class, race, ethnicity, and sexuality shape youth’s experiences; what it means to be “popular”; identity development; extended adolescence; the role of culture (through games, books, television, etc.) in youth’s lives.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
