Studying Sociology at the University of Michigan Flint means asking questions about society that may appear straightforward, but, in fact, rely upon complex cultural knowledge rooted in our social institutions.


Understanding Society Through Sociology

Have you ever wondered why we dress boys in blue and girls in pink? Why razors, deodorants, and even earplugs are gendered? Why do we see more men than women in leadership positions? Why women can have a closet full of clothes and still feel like they have nothing to wear? Why do we assume that there are only two sexes and two genders? Taking Gender and Society with Dr. Heather Laube, will give you the opportunity to explore how gender is socially constructed, not biologically given, and how our ideas about gender structure our desires, relationships, and social institutions, which then shape our opportunities, expectations, and experiences.

Can discrimination really be done “with a smile and a handshake”? How is inequality built right into our social institutions? Does taking to the streets really make social change? Do activists on the right and left use similar tactics?  You can explore these and other questions in courses like Race, Ethnicity and Institutionalized Racism, Social Inequality, and Social Movements.

With a blend of practical skills and theoretical knowledge, the Sociology major at University of Michigan Flint will inspire you to come up with your own questions and find the answers in the complex workings of the social world.
