This course examines race, ethnicity, class, gender, disability, sexuality, and other forms of diversity, with the goal of understanding how diversity is changing the contours of American society and reshaping the American workplace. Students explore diversity with an aim towards applying that knowledge to workplace and social relationships in our pluralistic society. By the end of the course, students will have a greater understanding of the diverse context of American society and will be conversant in the ongoing debates regarding race, class, gender, disability, and sexuality in our society today. Finally, students will become aware of their own cultural assumptions, perspectives, and habits so that they might engage respectfully with others who do not share their opinions, viewpoints, and cultural worldview. Prerequisite: meets the criteria for acceptance into a BAS/BSN program, completion of a two-year degree or equivalent, or instructor approval.
