EPSY 203: Social Issues Group Dialogues

Spring 2018 EPSY 203: Social Issues Group Dialogues sections have been announced. If you are interested in issues of diversity and social justice and/or need to add 1 or 2 credit hours this semester, these second 8-week (POT B) courses are worth considering.

These 1 credit hour elective courses provide students with opportunities to converse on specific diversity and social justice topic areas offered as separate sections under the course heading. Each section uses a structured dialogue format to explore intergroup and intragroup differences and similarities within historical and contemporary contexts. Specific focus will be on participants sharing their experiences and perspectives related to the specific dialogue topic. The dialogue format uses active learning exercises in addition to weekly readings, journal assignments, and topic based dialogues. Current course topics available: Being White in a Multicultural Society, Exploring Disability, 2 Race/Ethnicity dialogues, Exploring Sexual Identity, Resisting Marginalization, Conservative/Liberal Dialogue, and Exploring Socioeconomic Class.
