Advanced Special Topics in Sociology


Race and Academic Success   

Professor Angel Harris 

MW 10:15am-11:30am

This course will examine factors that explain racial differences in academic success, the narratives about race and schooling that exist within education and society in general, and the historical development and popularity of these narratives. Students will develop structural awareness that applies to nearly any domain of human behavior and learn to facilitate conversations on topics that many find difficult to discuss. This course is relevant for students interested in race, education, inequality, and socioeconomic mobility.
