SOC 205 - Sociology of Interpersonal Violence


Credits: (3)
This course entails an examination of violence among individuals and groups primarily in the United States. Throughout the course we ask the question, “What are the social causes of violence?” as well as look at various forms of interpersonal, institutional, and structural violence. Particular emphasis is placed on domestic violence, rape, child abuse, murder, assault, and hate crimes. Specific individual and institutional steps to eradicate violence are addressed, and the course includes service-learning opportunities. Students are encouraged to think through the various myths and controversies that arise when discussing violence.
