In this course students will explore the meanings of gender, race, ethnicity, class and sexual orientation, and their role in vocational development and career choice. We will address how the formal and informal types of social control associated with these categories operate in psychological development, vocational choice, and the workplace. This course is interdisciplinary, so articles from a variety of disciplines including counseling, psychology, economics, sociology and anthropology will be read to better understand the changing roles and expectations of men and women. Each of these interdisciplinary readings will be discussed within the framework of counseling theory.
