Among those courses are the University of North Carolina education department’s class, “"Critical Race Theory: History, Research, and Practice.” The course will cover how Critical Race Theory connects to “LatCrit Theory, AsianCrit, QueerCrit, TribalCrit, and Critical Race Feminism,” those terms being more recent areas of study that draw heavily from Critical Race Theory.
Duke University offers a similar course with an activism element: The class "Critical Race Theory in Education" will have students "prepare a policy proposal that addresses systemic racial inequities within K-12 education." Rather than being an academic examination of a controversial theory, the course will require students to use "the framework of critical race theory" to "apply case study analysis to their own K-12 education."
At the University of New Mexico, the course "Social Justice in Education" will teach future teachers "to integrate principles of social justice fully into classroom curriculum and instruction." At the University of Nevada-Reno, the course "Social Justice and Education" will train future teachers to "propose socially just educational approaches." These students will also "examine policies [and] curricul[a]...that promote social justice."
