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, 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 a collection of syllabi for courses concerned with social stratification, social mobility, and social inequality. These syllabi have been contributed mainly by our members, although anyone teaching pertinent courses is welcome to add your syllabus to our collection.
To contribute, please send your syllabus in .pdf format to
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. We expect shortly to be able to permit listing alphabetically by author or chronologically and searching for specific authors.
