Equity Studies Courses
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.
