Enroll in Intergroup Dialogue today!

Intergroup Dialogue is an exciting course at UT that is designed to help students build the skills and knowledge needed to take part in and to lead multicultural group interactions. The topics of this course include social identity development; prejudice and stereotyping and their effects on groups; difference and dominance and the nature of social oppression; and group facilitation skills and their applications in multicultural settings. Learners will address these and other topical areas through readings, videos, facilitated in-class dialogues, activities, simulations, role-plays, and reflective journal and writing assignments.

 

You will have the opportunity to expand your own self-awareness, and potentially have an impact on the identity development and multicultural understanding of other students. Through the course, you will develop valuable life skills in communication, group dynamics, teamwork, facilitation, and other valuable areas. If you are looking for ways to make a difference at UT, then this may be the very opportunity for you.

 

This course is open to all undergraduate students. The course satisfies the Cultural Diversity flag requirement.
