Social stratification is the study of inequality in society. In this course we will try to answer six important questions about American society:

1) Do social classes exist in America?
2) Are things getting better or worse?
3) Are workers exploited?
4) Is America a meritocracy?
5) How much race and gender inequality is there?
6) Why is there poverty in a country as wealth as America?

I believe that social stratification is the core course in sociology and that these questions about inequality are a crucial part of becoming a thoughtful and informed citizen.
