The classes I will take will be in human development, and personal growthin human relationships, marriage and family relationships and family ethnic and cultural diversity. I chose the degreeprogram in Family and Human Development to gain an understanding of the impact of ethnicity, culture, gender andprofessional life on individual development and family interaction patterns. I really think about the development ofindividuals and families as they relate to their diverse social worlds.My research project focus will be on social inequality and the mechanisms behind social inequality that are heavilyimpacting persons of color in the United States. The discussion will be based on the concept of social inequality interms of the effects of status, inequality based on differences in esteem and respect, alongside those based on resourcesand power. Furthermore, focus will be directed on how wealth, race, class, conflict and inequality impact families andoverall human development. The research will in end focus on providing a summary on how the aforementioned elements thatlead to social inequality affect life changes. Lastly, solutions will be given on how overarching inequality in theUnited States can be reduced and how equality can become a reality.Why do we have inequality in the United States? Most importantly, how can we get rid of it so we can have equality? Wheredid inequality come from? Why does it exist? Why does it continue? Do we justify inequality? Why? Can we eliminateinequality? How? Most importantly, can we make a society in which people are equal? How?Using a sociological approach will give the methodological and theoretical tools to begin to answer the questionsrelating to the research topic.Peer-reviewed research articles: Hunter, M. (2007).
