SC210  Introduction to Gender Studies     (3.00 cr.)

A broad overview of the role of gender in society. An interdisciplinary approach--ranging across history, psychology, art, economics, literature, philosophy, sociology, political science, biology, and anthropology--is used to address questions such as: How does biology contribute to gender differences? What role does culture play in the construction of gender? A unifying course theme is the myriad of ways gender, race/ethnicity, and social class intersect. Although the main focus is on the sex/gender system of contemporary U.S. society, cross-cultural and historical perspectives are incorporated. GT/IG
