Cultural Diversity

The Cultural Diversity minor provides knowledge and skills to critically think about issues of diversity. It is a minor that can complement a variety of degree programs. The courses in this minor provide tools to help students better understand individual and societal experiences of diverse cultures and communities. Learning about other cultures helps us understand different perspectives within the world in which we live, something that is a valuable skill to take into any prospective career trajectory. The courses aim to strengthen students’ understanding of how race, class, gender, ethnicity, nationality, and sexuality interact to define identities and shape social relations. The minor requires 18 credits: 12 credits of foundational and core courses and 6 elective credits.
