Professor Nikki Khanna Summer 2014 Email: nkhanna@uvm.edu May 19-June 13 Phone: 656-2162

COURSE OVERVIEW
The main purpose of this course is to introduce students to the sociological analysis of race and ethnic relations. We will examine patterns of ethnic/racial relations and apply these patterns to ethnic/racial groups within the United States. Once we have investigated race relations in the U.S., we will then turn to examining cases outside the U.S. as a basis for comparison. The basic outline of the course is: I.
 
Perspectives on Race and Ethnic Relations II.
 
Major Race and Ethnic Groups in the United States Today III.
 
Comparative Perspectives: South Africa
GRADING
There will be TWO exams (each is worth 25% of your final grade). All exams will be in multiple choice format, and exam questions will be drawn from the readings and lecture. 30% of your grade will come from a daily journal assignment (Tu, Wed, Thu).
PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT ACCEPT LATE OR EMAILED ASSIGNMENTS.
 The final 20% of your grade will come from attendance. Because of the short duration of the summer session, regular attendance is extremely important. Those with perfect attendance will receive full credit, and each day absent will result in a 10-point deduction in your attendance grade (out of a 100 pts). Anyone missing more than three days will automatically receive a failing grade for this course.

SPECIAL NEEDS
If you are a student with special needs and you are making arrangements with ACCESS, I am happy to accommodate your needs. It is your responsibility, however, to let me know your situation at the BEGINNING of the semester so arrangements can be made.
CLASSROOM CONDUCT
It is important that students conduct themselves appropriately. Classroom rules: Arrive to class on time, remain until class is dismissed, & refrain from actions that are disruptive (side-conversations, text-messaging, leaving & reentering the classroom inappropriately, ostentatiously not paying attention). Also TURN OFF ALL CELL PHONES. These are all very

EXAM MAKE-UP POLICY
Make-up exams will be given only under the most EXTRAORDINARY circumstances (e.g. hospitalization, family emergency) and will require (1) documentation and (2) 24-hour advance notice on the part of the student. Oversleeping or not feeling well does not constitute an emergency.
Also, take note of the exam dates -- if you cannot make an exam (e.g. you have
booked your flight home before the final; you’re going to be out of town), you need to drop
this course.
*Make-up exams will be given in essay format only.
BLACKBOARD & COMMUNICATION REQUIREMENTS
The best way for me to communicate with you outside of class is through Blackboard. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK OUR BLACKBOARD PAGE REGULARLY THROUGHOUT THE TERM. If you fail to check Blackboard, you may miss important information for which you are still responsible. To access our class, go to https://bb.uvm.edu/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp and login with your UVM username and  password. On this site you will find regularly updated class announcements, the syllabus, the daily journal topics, and your exam grades.
