SO121: Social Justice, Race, and Gender Issues in American Society is offered online by Fisher College. A sociological introduction to the historical and current influence of race, ethnicity, gender, and class on individuals and families, regarding inequality of social status, political power, access to education, health care, housing, other human services, career opportunity, and economic well-being. Examines both theoretical approaches and empirical evidence regarding the ways inequality is created, maintained, and overcome in society, and the harmful effects on individuals, families, and society as a whole. Topics addressed include: the social causes of racial, ethnic, gender, and class discrimination in American society; the nature of oppression and historical and current social justice and liberation movements seeking to combat it; individual and institutional forms of social injustice; social conditions promoting prejudice, racism, discrimination, segregation, and inequality of opportunity; social constructions of race and gender roles; and the responsibilities of the human services professional in combating injustice. Blackboard Collaborate participation is required in all Fisher College online courses. Participation is defined as attending the live environment, or watching a recorded session. Fisher College instructors offer an alternative (recordings) to the students who are unable to attend live, in an effort to keep online education as flexible as possible.
