EFOP 2129 - SOCIAL JUSTICE IN HIGHER EDUCATION SETTINGS

Credits: 3.0

This course is designed to expand students' understanding of their own privileged and minoritized identities around race, class, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, ability, and religion, while encouraging the development of a social justice orientation. This course draws on current theories and practical examples for addressing oppression and discrimination within postsecondary institutional contexts and challenges students to develop an orientation for praxis and liberation. Students are required to reflect critically and thoughtfully on their own social identities while incorporating current theories and practices for liberating subjugated students and communities within higher education contexts. Furthermore, students should aim to develop future programs, policies, and practices that promote social justice.
