EDUCATION AND CULTURE   [Archived Catalog]
2020-2021 Graduate & Professional Studies Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
The active experiences in the course are intended to challenge students to investigate and analyze the dynamic relationship between schooling, education, popular culture and society by addressing the normalizing effects of cultural narratives and images that influence our taken-for-granted assumptions, beliefs and actions. Class activities involve considering the moral, social and political dimensions of our educational practice by expanding our sense of what happens outside of schools and classrooms that contribute to shaping our worldviews. We work to better understand the dynamics of culture and the relationships among culture, history, power, language and knowledge. Thus we are challenged to become informed and invigorated professionals that can help reverse the patterns of dehumanization and social control that are often overlooked in the everyday world of practice.
