This program will draw from the fields of cultural studies, sociology, education, and feminist studies to examine the intersections between race, power, and privilege in contemporary US society. More specifically, students will study qualitative research methodologies and critical race theory to examine current "hot topics" such as immigration, farm worker issues, racial inequities in education, amongst other issues impacting local communities. Students will read research-based texts, counter narratives and media articles to formulate a critical analysis of the issues selected and the implications in society. This program will "meet students where they are" in order to promote more anti-racist and culturally-responsive perspectives.
This program will have both in person and online learning.
