Course: SOC 493. Diversity and Social Justice (3)
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 social identities, social group memberships and social roles along the lines of power, privilege, marginalization, and representation. An anti-oppressive theoretical framework will provide knowledge of how to build alliances and develop effective strategies for addressing social injustice. Available for graduate credit.
