Course Revision #1

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

SOC 2101f. Prejudice, Discrimination, and Systems of Oppression. (HDiv; 4.0 cr; prereq 1101 or Anth 1111 or #)

Patterns of group dominance, exploitation, and hate in the United States and globally. Emphasis on sexism, racism, and homophobia classism with some attention to other systems of oppression such as heterosexism, ageism and ableism.

 

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Change course title: Predudice and discrimination are part of a system of oppression, not separate from it. The new shorter title better conveys this idea. Changes in course description: The emphasis for the course is on the three most recognized dimensions of oppression in sociology: sexism, racism and classism. The term “heterosexism” is logically more consistent. Heterosexism is typically addressed in the course.

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Soc 2451fs. 20th and 21st-Century Native Americans. (HDiv; 4.0 cr)
