CORE 002 SC - Marginalized Communities


This course explores definitions of marginalization, mechanisms of marginalization, and experiences of marginalized communities in the United States, with specific attention paid to racial minority groups, women and children, immigrants, the LGBT community, and the poor. What hurdles exist for these communities as they attempt to navigate social, political and economic processes in the US? How have/do federal, state and local policies or proposed policies hurt or bolster these communities? We will mainly rely on readings from history, economics, politics, sociology, and psychology.

Course Credit: 1.0
