Diversity, Marginalisation and Oppression
0.5 Credit

This course critically examines the common links among experiences of oppression and marginalisation, such as racism, heterosexism/homophobia, classism, sexism, anti-Semitism and ableism, that intersect at individual, institutional and systemic levels. As such, this course takes a multi-levelled approach to critically examining social work practice and social work organizations, making links between theory, policy, and programming and the lived experiences of individuals, families and communities.
