SOCW 6051 - Diversity, Human Rights, and Social Justice


(5 cr.)
This is a foundation course in which students broadly address race and ethnicity, nationality, gender and sexuality, socioeconomic status and class, spirituality and religion, ability, and age in an effort to better understand social identity. Throughout this course, students complete discussions and applied assignments to explore the role of power, privilege, oppression, and marginalization on the social development of clients. In addition, students engage in reflective journals and activities to foster self-awareness of their own role in the hierarchy of power and privilege. At the completion of this course, students will have a personalized, digital Diversity Portfolio showcasing their developing competence in providing evidence-based contextually and culturally relevant assessments and interventions for individuals, families, groups, and communities.
