Course Description

Most people would not consider themselves as deviants as they would assume it refers to criminal behaviour. However, the fact is that everyone is a deviant in some way because deviance is both relative and socially constructed. Students examine sociological theories of deviance, focusing on their application to contemporary issues such as the relationship between crime and deviance and gender inequality, racism, and class discrimination. In addition, students explore areas such as sexual deviance, sociopathy, and crimes of power with a focus on understanding their role and impact on both the individual and society.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in one of the following: ANTH 1120, SOCI 1120, 1121, or 1127.
