Quantitative Intensive BS
This course examines gendered inequalities. We focus on how society influences the roles of family and sexuality, and how race and ethnicity structure gender inequality. We specifically highlight the role of business and the economy in creating and maintaining inequalities based on gender and sexuality. Topics covered in this course include: gendered earnings gaps at the local and global levels; the relationship between family and work; and the way gendered expectations and institutions negatively affect the leadership abilities of women and gender minorities in business and politics. We also review how the state regulates gender and sexuality. With an emphasis on both quantitative skills and diversity, you will learn crucial tools to navigate contemporary societies and critically examine official statistics and scholarly research.
