Featured Course: Race & Ethnic Relations

Posted on

“Hard discussions in a safe space…”

Race & Ethnic Relations provides a platform for open and supported discussion about what the country, and often the world, is talking about now. The course focuses on current events and relevant issues, and offers a perspective that will broaden and enlighten your thinking.

Topics include major court cases (Trayvon Martin, Eric Gardener) as well as current issues, including Rachel Dolezal, (former NAACP Chapter President in Spokane, WA), the pool party incident in McKinney, TX, and the events following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore.

SOCY 321, a Session II six week course begins on July 7, and fulfills a general education requirement (GEP) in the Social Sciences.
