Course Description

Work dominates a significant part of our lives and determines not only what we do many hours a day, but also who we meet, how we see and define ourselves, and at what standard we live. In this course, we will examine the larger forces that have an impact on our decisions about work and its conditions, some history about how work has been shaped and how groups of workers have organized to improve their working lives, and the effects of gender, race, and class on paid and unpaid work.

Students will receive credit for only one of CNST 1130 or 4850. CNST 1130 may not be used to satisfy the CNST 4850 requirement.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Post-Degree Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion Leadership.
