This course examines the social construction of deviance. That is, it examines how society makes rules for behavior, how those rules change over time, and who tends to benefit (and who tends to be limited) because of society’s rules. The question of whether deviance is ”good” or ”bad” for society will also be examined. Finally, the course will consider what happens to people who break society’s rules, both in terms of how society views rule-breakers and how they view themselves.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
