Courses offered by the department cover topics such as: sociological theories of development; research methods; community development; sociology of the environment; agriculture and the food system; population dynamics and linkages with development and the environment; technology and social change; social movements; the implications of the genomic revolution for society; globalization and international development issues; women in development; class, gender, and ethnic stratification; migration and immigration; health status and differentials.
