DIVERSITY AND SPECIAL POPULATIONS
Course level: "Upper Division"
"The emphasis of this course is on the context of diverse social systems including roles of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, cultural dynamics, socio-economic status, variations of learning styles, and individual ability in evaluation and client needs assessment.

The course involves an exploration of special populations to include individuals with disabilities, economically disadvantaged families and foster children, single parents including single pregnant women, displaced homemakers, individuals with barriers to educational achievement (including those with limited English proficiency), the aging and elderly, individuals preparing for nontraditional employment, tribal communities, refugees and immigrants, and underserved or hard-to-serve populations in general."
