SOC 360 - Critical Race Theory


4 credit(s)
This course focuses on the Critical Race Theory (CRT), which is a multidisciplinary approach to the study of race and ethnic relations. One of the main goals of CRT is to question the dominant paradigm/ideology about race and reconstruct our perceptions of race through counternarratives told by marginalized and oppressed groups. Therefore, this course will expose students to counternarratives that marginalized and oppressed groups tell through class discussions, guest speakers, and course readings. Another important tenet of CRT is to examine the institution and structure of racism through a perspective that stresses intersectionality, and, therefore, the course will not only examine racial issues, but will also examine how these issues affect and are affected by other forms of oppressions, such as sexism, heterosexism, elitism, etc.Upon completing the course students should have a keen awareness of how oppressions (racism, sexism, eltism, heterosexism, etc.) intersect in societal structures.

Prerequisite(s): SOC 101, SOC 102, SOC 110 , SOC 120 , SOC 130 , or SOC 150 .
