CORE-201 AU Experience II (1.5)

American University Experience (AUx) is a full-year sequence of courses for students transitioning into their first year of college at AU. Race and social identity, which include but are not limited to ethnicity, gender and sexual expression, class, disability, and religion, are often discussed in coded, contentious, or uncomfortable ways. This course creates a space for conversations and learning about these topics that pushes beyond the norm. It builds upon concepts introduced in CORE-100 /CORE-101 , blending personal exploration of social identity formation with a multidisciplinary approach to race and ethnicity. As a starting point for the academic study of the structures of culture and power as well as social movements that challenge those structures, the course equips students to become part of a community of learners whose members come from a variety of backgrounds and bring with them a range of experiences. AU Core Foundation: AU Experience II. Usually Offered: spring. Grading: A-F only. Prerequisite: CORE-100  or CORE-101  with grade of C or higher. Permission: program director. Note: Students may not receive credit toward a degree for both CORE-200  and CORE-201.
