Social stratification

Social stratification is the categorization of people based on a number of socioeconomic factors. Social stratification may lead to social inequality because some groups of people have more access to resources, power, and status than others. We can see examples of social stratification and inequality in many television shows, movies, or documentaries.

In this assignment, you will watch a production and describe the social stratification and inequality that you observe.

Note: Contact your instructor for approval if you are unsure if a certain media production fits the assignment.
