COURSES TAUGHT

 

SOC 20100-01: Sociology of The Family
Designed and taught the course as a way of exploring how the family and marriage are presented as social institutions in the U.S.  Examining intimate social relationships enhances our ability to critically look at different family structures and how some are privileged over others.  This course engages various topics including how issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and religion affect how the family is constructed, as well as, examining ruptures and changes in family structure, including divorce, remarriage and violence.

MGT 3120: Fundamentals of Management
Taught the course to trace the historical, developmental, and contemporary aspects of management. Qualitative as well as quantitative concepts, tools, techniques, and classes are introduced. In addition, the role of the manager as a decision-maker in a dynamic environment is examined.

SOC 21700-01: Race and Ethnicity
Designed and taught the course to provide a sociological understanding of racial and ethnic relations in the United States, as well as considering global realities of racism. The course literature on race and ethnicity is reflective of the historical struggles over political access, economic resources and the entrenched nature of racism within social structures that continue to permeate and shape institutions.  Students who take this course can expect to become more cognizant of the impact race and ethnicity have on individuals and groups in society, and how we contribute to its social construction.

SOCY 1101: Introduction to Sociology
Designed and taught sections for Introduction to Sociology, focusing on the development of the Sociological Imagination and examining the major questions that guide sociological analysis, as well as practice “doing” sociology by exploring our everyday social world and the oftentimes invisible or taken-for-granted social forces that shape it.
