The topics of this course include social identity development; prejudice and stereotyping and their effects on groups; difference, dominance, and the nature of social oppression; basic group facilitation skills and their applications in multicultural settings. The course addresses these and other topical areas through readings, videos, facilitated in-class dialogues, activities, simulations, role-plays, and reflective journal and writing assignments.
