ZTC and LTC Classes

The college strives to ensure that the ZTC and LTC designations are accurate; however, under some circumstances, faculty may have to adjust selection of instructional materials and this can affect course material costs. It may also be necessary to change instructors. Replacement faculty have academic freedom to choose instructional materials regardless of costs and are not obligated to use free course materials selected by an instructor previously assigned to the class.

Introduction to Women's Studies

This course introduces students to women's studies through sociological theories, concepts, and sociological research. The course examines the status and roles of women in social institutions, social organizations, and social classes. It compares and contrasts similarities and differences in women's experiences based on race and ethnic groups, different cultures, and subcultures - with particular considerations of culturally specific notions of femininities. It is guided by sociology's emphases on cultural relativism, diversity, and the effects of inequality. Topics include institutional discrimination, gender socialization, sexuality, varied cultural influences, feminism, and regional, national, and global perspectives on women's rights.
