DOC 100D: Promises and Contradictions in US Culture

This course is open to Juniors and Seniors from all six colleges as well as TMC Transfer students.  It satisfies UCSD’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion requirement.*

DOC 100D provides a broad overview of the histories of multiple communities and explores the struggle for social justice in the United States. 

Topics include:

  • social movements
  • shifting ideologies of class, "race," and gender
  • the rise of corporate power, and
  • the transformation of higher education. 

Students will learn to analyze and discuss historical artifacts that range from essays on gender and racialization to autobiography to video and film. 

* A knowledge of diversity, equity, and inclusion is required of all candidates for a Bachelor’s degree who begin their studies at UC San Diego in lower-division standing in Fall 2011 or thereafter, or in upper-division standing in Fall 2013 or thereafter. Undergraduates may satisfy the requirement by passing a four-unit course expressly approved by the University's Undergraduate Council for this purpose.
