SOCI203 - Race & Ethnicity in American Society
This course introduces students to the sociological study of race and ethnicity.

Topics include, but are not limited to, historical and contemporary racial formation and classification schemes; formations of racial and ethnic identities; and the political, geographic, cultural, and economic implications of racial and ethnic segregations. SOCI 203 fulfills the SUNY General Education Social Science requirement. Prerequisites: SOCI 101; MATH 090 and RDNG 116 if required by placement testing; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 101. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.). Fall semester.
