SBS 300 - Deviance and Social Control

This course provides a forum to examine deviance and social control from sociological, psychological, ecological, environmental and cross-cultural (anthropological) perspectives, examining contested definitions of deviance, and different theories about deviance and social control. The course investigates the interrelationships of culture, power, identity formation and social change. We will explore portrayals of deviance and social control in literature, film, and popular culture. Students challenge their critical thinking skills and will achieve a higher level of understanding about the relative notion of deviance, including how it relates to population size, and the nature(s) and type(s) of social control.
