General Education: Cultures

The study of culture prompts you to recognize yourself as a cultural being and to understand the diverse ways in which people organize life and perceive the world. Courses that receive the cultural designation analyze the sources, causes, implications, and ways of understanding diversity both in the  United States and around the globe. They focus on the values, perceptions, history, creative expression, and social life of various cultures and subcultures in the United States and in other countries and world regions. Such study enhances one’s ability to live and work intelligently, responsibly, and cooperatively. Courses with a Cultures designation may count for Foundations or Issues credit in addition to Cultures credit.
