Students in Higher Education

Students in Higher Education
This course explores how students experience higher education, in terms of access to college, life within colleges, and post college life outcomes. Because students are so diverse in background and U.S. higher educations are so varied in type, the course will focus on how these issues vary by student background (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, and social class) and type of college entered (e.g., elite private colleges, mass public colleges, community colleges, and proprietary schools). We will draw on a variety of kinds of sources, including ethnographies, journalistic accounts, and autobiographical writings. 3 hrs. lect./disc. (Sociology)
