SRES 301 - Social Critical Theory

(3 credits)
This course teaches students to challenge the status quo, question the values of the dominant culture, and change the ordinary way of thinking about social responsibility. Social critical theory asks questions that deal simultaneously with political, cultural, and moral dimensions of life in order to empower students to contribute to liberation and justice by getting people to come out of their “culture of silence.” Some of the social critical theorists studied will represent feminist, Marxist, or religious perspectives that are often silenced or at least marginalized by society.
