Course Description

Topics covered in the class include culturally relevant styles of communication, values from different cultures, racial identity, power and privilege, and issues involving affirmative action. This course will help prepare students to grapple with issues of multiculturalism in the modern diverse society.

Class meetings will contain lectures, class discussion, and class presentations. Lectures will be comprised of both formal presentations and videotapes. Discussions will be built into class meeting periods. Occasionally, these discussions will be based upon in-class writing periods. Class presentations will be based upon examination of issues outside of the classroom.
