When we initiate new courses, or revise old ones, many of us would like to be able to consult the syllabi constructed by our colleagues who have taught similar courses. To meet this need for courses concerned with social stratification, social mobility, and social inequality, the Research Committee on Social Stratification and Social Mobility (RC 28), with the generous technical support of the California Center for Population Research, has established an archive of syllabi for such courses. These syllabi have been contributed mainly by our members, although anyone teaching pertinent courses is welcome to add syllabi to our collection.
To contribute, please submit your syllabus in .pdf format (it would help if you added the name of your institution to the syllabus itself). Your syllabus usually will be added to the collection in just a few days. For now, the syllabi will be shown in the order received (after the initial set of syllabi, which are listed in alphabetical order). We expect shortly to be able to permit listing alphabetically by author or chronologically and searching for specific authors.
To download a syllabus, click on it. The title will then appear in a separate window. Click on it again and it will open on your screen. Save it in your usual way.
