SW 3370 - Diverse Individuals and Families in Societal Contexts


3 Credit(s) | $7.50 Fee

This course examines the intersection of gender, class, race, ethnicity, and other variables-including sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic location (rural, urban), and household composition (single-parent, nuclear, same-sex)-and the impact they have on the lived experience of diverse individuals and families. The goal is to broaden our understanding of family life, and the diversity in how we “do” family as it operates within macro-level forces within society’s social systems and institutions (e.g. work, education, health care, the state) that privilege some while hindering others in their ability to function and thrive. The course concludes with an examination of the ways in which we can work toward social change and justice for all through compassion, reflexivity, introspection, and social change agency. (Fall [As Needed], Spring [As Needed]) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
