DOC 100D: Promises and Contradictions in US Culture

This course is open to Thurgood Marshall College transfer students, as well as Juniors and Seniors from the other five colleges.  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.
