EDUC 0580 - Theory of Critical Multicultural Education

Credits: 3

This course provides a foundation in Critical Multicultural Education and Critical Race theories. Students are guided in reflecting on their personal identities and socialization to examine how social constructions of difference shape the perspectives, policies, and opportunities of different groups in the United States. The construction of difference includes, but is not limited to: race, class, religion, gender, ability status, and sexual orientation. This course explores the historical role that education plays in framing relationships between social groups and institutional power. Critical self-reflection, historical contexts of oppression, and contemporary social justice issues are emphasized in this course to align with the department's commitment to Social Justice, Critical Engagement with Diversity, and Reflective Practice. This graduate course is cross-listed with EDUC 0215 and is differentiated by assignments, learning outcomes and expectations at an advanced level.
