SOC-362 Sociology of Work

Sociology of Work analyzes the many forces that shape today's workplace and the lives of workers. This course begins by examining the historical and conceptual foundations of the sociological study of work. It then moves on to discuss changes in the workplace in the last century. In addition, the course analyzes workplace issues such as global, social, economic and cultural trends; gender and racial inequality; varied types of work; and the interplay between work and personal life.

Advisory: This is an upper-level course. Students should have knowledge equivalent to an introductory sociology course.
