SW-701: Positionality and Epistemology

2 credit hours

This course introduces the concept of how knowledge is shaped by who a person is as an individual. Discussion will occur about what knowledge, why it is valuable to us, and the sources of knowledge we consider to be “truth.” At the conclusion of this course, individuals will be asked about values, beliefs, and attitude changes and how these shifts have affected their positionality and the epistemological claims they maintain about the world.
