Prerequisites: Graduate standing; Acceptance to the MSW program.

Students have the opportunity to critically examine and develop ideas to counter issues including, but not limited to settler colonialism, coloniality, imperialism, slavery, cishetero-patriarchy, white supremacy, sexism, capitalism/classism, heterosexism, transgender oppression, religious oppression, ableism, audism, ageism/adultism, racism, and sanism. Students practice ongoing self-reflective learning to identify, make visible, and be responsive to power, privilege, and social location.
