This course fulfills the General Education U.S. Diversity and Pluralism Requirement.

This interdisciplinary course will define the terms classism, racism, and sexism and explore how they intersect to shape systems of oppression. Through historical and political consciousness, we will assess different social and cultural forces. We will also examine social constructions of race, gender, and class and how they create worldviews that discourage us from challenging the status quo. In the end, our goal is to dismantle our various "isms" and envision social change for social justice.
