Intercultural Perspectives

Intercultural Perspectives courses prepare students for effective citizenship in a diverse multicultural society in the U.S. or beyond. In these courses, students will recognize new perspectives about their own cultural rules and biases by:

  • Demonstrating an understanding of the ways marginalized and dominant groups define and express themselves, and the contexts in which these definitions are constructed, and/or
  • Demonstrating an understanding of how such global forces as imperialism, colonialism, religion, globalization, capitalism and socialism have shaped ideas, groups, institutions, and/or the natural environment, and/or
  • Demonstrating an understanding of theories addressing notions of race, gender, sexuality, class, disability, ethnicity, nationalism, and/or other socially constructed categories.
