Diversity [DIVR]: Course List

Diversity courses introduce students to cultural differences and similarities by exploring the multiplicity of individual and group experiences within and across various historical periods, societies, and cultures. This exploration contributes to stronger, more complex cross-cultural understanding and communication, helping students engage various social and cultural contexts and interactions using knowledge, critical thinking, and flexibility in perspective. DIVR courses also encourage students to ask more complicated questions about cultural systems and systems of power, and to pursue answers that reflect multiple cultural and intellectual perspectives.

Choose one [DIVR] course (3 credits) to fulfill part of your UCORE graduation requirements.
