GEP U.S. Diversity

Requirement (1 course, 0 additional credit hours)

  • Choose one course from the university approved GEP U.S. Diversity course list.
  • Courses on additional GEP course lists that satisfy the U.S. Diversity co-requisite will have a “USD” co-requisite indicator next to the course.
  • Special Note:  If a student changes a General Education course except for HES courses from a letter grade to credit-only (S/U), then the course will not satisfy the GEP requirements.  Consult your academic advisor if you have questions.

Double-counting

  • A course taken to satisfy another GEP category may also be used to satisfy the U.S. Diversity co-requisite if the course also exists on the university approved GEP co-requisite course list.

Rationale

The study of diversity in the United States provides students the opportunity to consider questions of difference and culture, identity and community, privilege and oppression, and power and responsibility in our nation, and to gain an understanding of how these issues affect both individuals and communities.

Category Objectives

Each course in U.S. Diversity will provide instruction and guidance that help students to achieve at least 2 of the following:

  1. Analyze how religious, gender, ethnic, racial, class, sexual orientation, disability, and/or age identities are shaped by cultural and societal influences;
  2. Categorize and compare historical, social, political, and/or economic processes producing diversity, equality, and structured inequalities in the U.S.;
  3. Interpret and evaluate social actions by religious, gender, ethnic, racial, class, sexual orientation, disability, and/or age groups affecting equality and social justice in the U.S.;
  4. Examine interactions between people from different religious, gender, ethnic, racial, class, sexual orientation, disability, and/or age groups in the U.S.
