Minor in Cultural Diversity

Build a multicultural perspective

Broaden your current major with a minor that adds a framework around the study of culture, race, ethnicity, or gender. Build a multicultural perspective into your professional practice of education, nursing, social work, business, medicine, public affairs, and law. Explore the origin and transformation of racial and ethnic categories, the relationship of culture and biology, processes of acculturation and pluralism, the evolution of scholarly thought on human diversity, and how it is that any of us comprehends others.
