HD 361 - Social and Political Contexts of Human Development

3 credits
The diverse social and political contexts of our society affect the socialization of the individual and his/her understanding of human development. This class examines attitudes toward gender, class, race/ethnicity, disability and sexual orientation, along with the historical contexts within which specific theories of human development were created. Students are challenged to examine these influences on their own growth and perceptions of human behavior, to define their personal ethics within the context of contemporary society, and to search for creative professional responses to inequality and bias. A variety of methods, including experiential activities, small group discussion, weekly writing, reading, and mini-lectures are utilized.
