This course surveys various theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of social stratification. Emphasis is placed on social inequalities by gender, race, and family background in attaining social status as measured by education, occupation, and income. Societal variations along both temporal and regional dimensions will be considered. Students are encouraged to critically evaluate the current literature and conduct their own research using individual-level data from censuses and surveys.
