SOC 106 - (BH) Work in the Global Economy

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course examines how work affects our lives as individuals, as citizens of a specific society, and as participants in a world economy. Some of the key questions to be addressed in the course include: What is the relationship between work and power? Why do so many people feel alienated at work? Do people benefit equally from work? What is the role of technology in shaping how people work? The course attempts to address these issues by looking at work and labor relations in the United States and comparing them to conditions in other sectors of the world economy.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
