SOCL 3100 - Human and Community Service: Organizing Across Race, Class, Gender and Age

Hours: 4
This seminar examines the ways in which axes of social difference both divide and unite individuals and communities. Students are introduced to the varied forms and roles of non-profit and advocacy organizations to prepare students for work in human and community services. Students focus on organizations that represent the interests of diverse groups of people to achieve social justice and self-determination, as well as how the persistence of community-based efforts may create positive change. The course has both theoretical and practical components to allow students to gain field experience while studying critical social theory, research, and films related to community service and community activism.
