  Course Description
The purpose of this course is to provide students with an opportunity to examine issues of diversity and human rights in social work practice with individuals, families, groups, and social systems. The effects of social locations (e.g., race, class, gender, gender expression, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religion, physical or mental disability and national origin) are examined as they relate to interpersonal, intergroup, and structural inequalities. Central to this course will be an examination of the beliefs and values that individuals bring to expectations of self and others as they interact within the context of social locations. The concerns that emerge in multicultural environments are explored to encourage students to understand the historical, political, and sociological realities of perceived and genuine differences, including variations in exposure to and consequences of trauma based on differences in power and privilege.  Exposure to content regarding the impact of ethnocentrism, bias, prejudice, discrimination, and human rights violations will be a central aspect of student learning. The contribution of this course to the overall core foundation/advanced curricula will be addressed.
