Department Overview


Intergroup Relations (IGR) is designed for students with a curricular interest in race, social justice, and dialogic pedagogies.  Intergroup Relations courses provide students with a foundation in understanding conceptual and theoretical knowledge related to race, racism, and racial identity development in the U.S.  The program also helps students bridge theory (content) with practice (process) by applying communication and facilitation skills within intergroup and intragroup dialogue settings.  In addition, skills learned in Intergroup Relations courses are applicable to the "real world"-including preparing students to enter graduate programs focused on social action, work in diverse workplaces, and successfully navigate a global society.
