This concentration examines the dynamism and creative contestation of culture and social norms across the globe, as well as the constraints within which people negotiate meaningful lives. By selecting from courses on a wide range of topics—including gender and sexuality, families and marriage, ethnicity and racism, class and inequality, immigration, health and cultural conceptions of the body, urban life, war and violence, cultural images and mass media, technology and work, social movements, and globalization—students explore how people create and experience their social worlds.
