The Diversity and Inclusion minor requires a total of 18 credit hours. These credit hours must include four of the 3-credit hour courses listed under General Education Goal 5: Culture and Diversity. Currently, this general education area is interdisciplinary, including choices of 16 distinct courses from 18 different prefixes and 4 academic divisions.
Because the Diversity and Inclusion minor is designed to be an interdisciplinary program, there are two additional parameters set on the choice of the four courses. First, students can use no more than 2 courses with the same prefix can be used toward the [Diversity Studies] minor. Second, students must take courses with at least three unique prefixes to satisfy the diversity studies minor.
In addition to those four substantive courses, completion of a Diversity and Inclusion minor also requires a 3-credit Capstone Seminar Project course. This course is a high-impact academic course designed to integrate a student’s work in their diversity courses with that of their major program. This should help students consider the role diversity has in their academic and professional careers
