Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 05 - Hist/Soc/Behav Sci
    • Employ the methods and data that historians and social and behavioral scientists use to investigate the human condition.
    • Examine social institutions and processes across a range of historical periods and cultures.
    • Use and critique alternative explanatory systems or theories.
    • Develop and communicate alternative explanations or solutions for contemporary social issues.
  • Goal 07 - Human Diversity
    • Understand the development of and the changing meanings of group identities in the United States' history and culture.
    • Demonstrate an awareness of the individual and institutional dynamics of unequal power relations between groups in contemporary society.
    • Analyze their own attitudes, behaviors, concepts and beliefs regarding diversity, racism, and bigotry.
    • Describe and discuss the experience and contributions (political, social, economic, etc.) of the many groups that shape American society and culture, in particular those groups that have suffered discrimination and exclusion.

Description
Who determines what is "normal" in society? What is the difference between deviance and social rebellion? How is labeling linked to discrimination and discrediting rather than helping and healing? This course examines the role of professionals and social institutions responsible for creating and enforcing public and private codes of behavior. Sexual orientation, mental illness and gender stereotypes are examples examined. Those who resist conforming to those codes are also studied. Students analyze theories, read criticism, view films and evaluate other forms of interdisciplinary documentation.
