What will I learn?

These interdisciplinary courses promote an appreciation of multicultural influences in contemporary society. Courses in this category encourage students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to function effectively in a pluralistic democratic society and to interact, negotiate, and communicate with people from diverse groups in order to create a civic and moral community that works for the common good. This emphasis provides students with lower-division major preparation for disciplines within the area of study devoted to culture and society. These majors include Chicano studies, ethnic studies, foreign language, global studies, international development, peace and conflict studies, and women's studies.

Program Student Learning Outcome Statement:
