Demography of Race

[ Previous | Index | Next ]

Sociology 595

3 credit hours, offered periodically

This course focuses on race in the U.S. context. We begin by examining the construction of race and the allocation of people into racial categories. Next, we explore racial differences in fertility--married, unmarried, and teenage fertility, marriage patterns, family structure; mortality--infant mortality, life expectancy, health status; migration--segregation, immigration, residential mobility; and population composition--poverty, employment, education. Throughout our focus is on current differences as well as trends. [The Sociology 595 number is listed for several courses, because it is used for a set of population courses that rotate in the schedule with different section numbers.]
