Soc190: Life After College: What’s the Evidence?

Special Evidence-Focused Seminar. For more information: http://evidence.emory.edu/in-the-news/evidence-focused-courses.html

This course examines the world of work and occupations from a sociological perspective.

What is the meaning of work? How do cultural notions of work influence our work choices? How is the U.S. work world structured and how has this changed over time? What types of industries are growing in the U.S. and why? How do women and men fare in the world of work? How does organizational culture influence the everyday lives of workers?

We will explore these and other questions using evidence from classic and current sociological theory and research.
