Topic: Sociology of Higher Education


The purpose of this course is to provide students with an introduction
to the sociological study of higher education, especially in the
United States.  The course will cover several theoretical approaches
to the study of education and then will examine a number of problems
and questions regarding higher education, including those related to
social stratification, organization and authority, students and
faculty.  Twenty-five percent of the content for this course will be
dedicated to the experiences of Latinos (HSIs, students, and faculty).
As such, the course can be taken to fulfill requirements for the
Latino Studies Ph.D. minor.
