EQTY 2500 Introduction to Equity (3 credits)

We will critically examine issues such as race, gender, sexuality, social class, political and religious affiliation, dis/ability, geographical location, etc., in order to better understand the changing nature of society in the United States and begin to chart a trajectory that not only identifies opportunities and barriers for ourselves but allows us to develop empathetic understanding of how these factors affect others in society. As the introductory course in the Equity Certificate, 'Intro to Equity' will introduce students to concepts that will clarify important theoretical concepts in understanding Equity and begin to apply these ideas to the analysis of their own experiences, and in their own professional fields. Liberal Education Goal Areas 5 & 7.

EQTY 4500 Applications of Equity (3 credits)

As a "Capstone" course in BSU's Equity Certificate program, Applications of Equity will focus on the individual explorations of equity each student has undertaken. We will continue to critically examine issues such as race, gender, sexuality, social class, political and religious affiliation, dis/ability, and geographical location in greater depth, to deepen our understanding of the changing nature of society in the United States. Students will relate the insights they have gained through their experiences in the program, so the specific topics covered will vary with the focus areas of participants. Prerequisite(s): EQTY 2500.
