SOCI 345 - Deviance and Social Control

(3cr) This course examines social norms and discusses why individuals and groups violate them. Students will examine the social construction of deviance by questioning who creates norms and laws, and who enforces them, with particular attention paid to resulting social inequality. The application of sociological theory and concepts will demonstrate the differential social power in society and how it operates to ensure conformity. Prerequisites: SOCI 203 .
