Description:

Competency Area: Cultural & Individual Diversity

This course presents an approach to addressing issues of sociocultural diversity and social concerns of justice and professional responsibility. While informed by feminist, multicultural and post-colonial theories, this course moves away from an identity-specific approach and instead applies an interpretive (hermeneutic) and procedural framework to the enhancement of mutual understandings across seemingly noncommensurate social conflicts.
