JCL 120 - Theory and Inquiry in Justice, Community and Leadership

Upper Division

JCL 010  or permission of the instructor.

This course is an advanced introduction to the critical social theory utilized in the JCL program to evaluate some of the political, social, economic, educational, and environmental justice issues that confront local, regional, national, and global communities. Critical social theory is distinct from other forms of critical theory (philosophical, political, literary), yet is in conversation with them. We will be exploring the relationships between oppression, power, society, education and social change through a diverse body of theory, while employing social science methodologies to collect and interpret evidence about the social world.
