The Diversity Minor is intended to acquaint students with a broad and introductory understanding of human diversity, domestic and abroad. Upon completion of the minor, students should have foundational knowledge of socially constructed identities, including race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, age, ethnicity, and nationality. 

Central Learning Goals:

  • To provide an in-depth analysis of at least one socially constructed identity
  • To teach about the intersections of socially constructed categories, perspectives and experiences
  • To investigate the phenomena of transnationalism and globalism as they are related to identities and issues of power
  • To teach students to think critically about power, inequality, marginality and activism.
