SOWK 1030 - Cultural Diversity

(3 credits)
The dual purpose of this course is to introduce the knowledge necessary for social work practice with disadvantaged, marginalized, and oppressed groups and to advance a philosophy that people come first and must be treated with dignity and respect. Issues of power, privilege, prejudice, discrimination, oppression, civil rights, historical and legal heritage, and contemporary news events are central course components. Opportunities are provided for examining personal values and beliefs and their impact on interactions with minority groups. Although several aspects of diversity are examined, the emphasis is on race, class, gender, ethnicity, and affectional orientation. Implications for sensitive, effective, and affirming practice with minority groups are examined.
