Course: SOC 493. Diversity and Social Justice (3)
Prerequisites: SOC 356 and SOC 357, or instructor consent. This course explores diversity, privilege and oppression on individual, social/cultural and institutional levels, based on the intersections of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, (dis)ability status, and social class. Students will examine their own identities, social group memberships and social roles along lines of power, privilege, marginalization, and representation. An anti-oppression theoretical framework will provide knowledge of how to build alliances and develop effective strategies for addressing social injustice.
