HLTH 6051 - Diversity, Human Rights, and Social Justice♦


(5 cr.) Students in this foundational course broadly address race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status and class, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ability and disability, and environment in an effort to better understand social identity. Throughout this course, students benefit from course assignments, discussions, and course materials that address the role of power and privilege and oppression and marginalization on the development of clients. Students specifically focus on activities that help them recognize systems that support or foster power inequities, oppression, and underutilization of human talent and skills. In addition, students engage in self-awareness activities that foster their understanding of their role in the hierarchy of power and privilege. At the completion of this course, students understand the importance of social workers developing competence in providing evidence-based, contextually and culturally relevant assessments and interventions for individuals, families, groups, and communities.
