INST 2006 - Dimensions of Culture and Society

Hours: 4
This course broadly examines elements of culture and diversity in domestic and global society as they intersect with structural issues associated with rapidly changing fundamental institutions, the distribution of wealth and power, and access to community, technological and environmental resources. The course explores the intersection of structure and culture in real world terms and everyday issues that we often take for granted (such as life cycle, youth, aging and death, health and health care, immigration and impacts of technology). At the same time, the course will introduce students to basic elements of the social sciences–structure and culture–as we shape them and as they shape societal perceptions and expectations of our present and future lives.
