Yngve Digernes, Ph.D.
Dr. Digernes teaches thought-provoking courses primarily in the areas of deviance/criminology and social inequality. He also teaches classical social theory and cultural sociology. Dr. Digernes grew up near Bergen, on the west coast of Norway, and his cross-cultural experience provides a basis for a global approach in sociology. As a learning tool, he often compares and contrasts the American social model with that of Scandinavia. In Dr. Digernes’ courses, students are challenged to question what they know about the world around them, and they learn to see social issues from a wide range of perspectives.
