261. Race and Law (4)

distribution of health and health services locally, nationally,
and internationally.

understanding ideologies; and consider impacts of bi-

training, and home-school conflicts in ways of speaking
and using language(s). Prerequisite: graduate standing
or consent of instructor.

race, and citizenship; and globalization and immigrant
labor. Prerequisite: graduate standing or consent of
instructor.
