SC 106 - Health and Society

(3.00 cr.)

An introduction to macro-, micro-, and mesosociology with particular emphasis on the social causes, social distribution, and social responses to health/illness. Topics include cultural conceptions of disease and its treatment (including roles and norms); the consequences of social inequality (especially race/ethnicity, class, and gender); and the social organization of care. Historical-evolutionary and cross-national comparisons supplement a primary focus on the contemporary situation in the United States.
