Credits: 0 TO 1

This course provides third year Gural Scholars with an examination of critical theory, social history and public policy dilemmas in a global context. Students strengthen their habit of critical and self-reflection on the questions that challenge society and deepen their knowledge of the multiple forms and interlocking nature of oppression. Through course readings, dialogue, guest speakers, excursions, and course assignments, students will further their understanding of creating and sustaining positive social change outside of the U.S. Students will explore the interactions of global social justice history throughout the year, and will develop a final project for public presentation in the spring semester. A trip outside of the U.S. is required for course completion. Required for all Gural Scholars in the third year, all other students not allowed. This course requires both fall and spring registration.
