EDUC 0580 - Multicultural Education


Credits: 3

The course provides a foundation in the theory and practice of Multicultural Education. Students are guided in an examination of the ways in which socially constructed categories of difference shape the perspectives and opportunities of groups in the United States. These categories include but are not limited to, race, class, gender, ability status and sexual orientation. The course explores the role that education plays in the relationships between social groups and institutional power. In addition, students will be introduced to an inclusive multicultural approach to teaching.
