Discovery Course

HDEV 2201 - Discovery: Fitting Into a World of Difference is a new and dynamic course that meets the Human Diversity Proficiency Requirement in the new curriculum. Discovery, a 2 credit hour course is taught each semester, and is a seminar-style journey for students to learn more about their own identity and how they fit in to the communities of which they are a part.

Topics will include: Elements of Oppression, Cycle of Socialization, Identity Development Models, Privilege, Race, Sex, Gender, Sexuality, Ability, Ethnicity, Class, and Faith.

Through experiential activities, group discussions, reflection papers and journals, presentations and readings students will analyze their own development, develop their cultural competency and broaden their understanding.
