Diversity, with a special interest in social justice for oppressed populations, is the signature theme of the undergraduate curriculum for the MSU School of Social Work.
Completion of a diversity project in the second semester of the junior year is a major component in the implementation of our diversity-themed curriculum. The diversity project will serve as a springboard for discussion on diversity and provide abundant reference material for students to further develop their understanding of diversity issues. It is not the only way that the diversity theme will be integrated into the curriculum, but it is a powerful means to insure that diversity will receive optimal coverage in our courses.
