SOCI 410 - Diversity in the City

This course examines the city as an amalgamation of diverse communities, with people engaged in interpreting and responding to urban life. It examines changes in the structure of urban neighborhoods, and how these neighborhoods are impacted by social, economic, spatial and political conditions. Issues such as ethnic enclaves, urban poverty, homelessness, unemployment, public and park space and ethnic/racial segregation will be investigated. 

SOCI 451 - Economics of Women and the Family

Women make choices concerning marriage, fertility and labor market participation on the basis of many factors, including government policies targeting those decisions. This course uses economic theory and empirical research in order to describe the changing demographic profile of families, poverty, and the labor force and to explore how economic theory and practice fit into the larger social science goals of describing human behavior by focusing on women and on the family.
