Social Structure and Personality

Sociology 591

3 credit hours, offered periodically

This graduate seminar explores how one's position in the social structure affects individual-level experiences and characteristics, including physical and mental health, attitudes, personality, and achievement patterns. The social structure and personality paradigm does not focus solely on documenting these patterns; rather, in this class we explore the social psychological pathways that link characteristics such as race, class, gender, citizenship, occupation, birth cohort, and family roles with individual-level outcomes.
