Multicultural Awareness (3 Credits)

Students will have an “understanding of how people’s experiences and perspectives are shaped by gender, ethnicity, culture and other factors that distinguish groups of people, coupled with recognition of common elements within human experience that transcend time, space, race and circumstances” (BOG).

Multicultural awareness assists individuals, regardless of ethnicity, gender, disabilities, social class or race, to understand and appreciate events and people from various points of view. Courses focus on one or more of the following: gender, ethnicity, racial diversity, world religious belief systems or non-western cultures.

Objectives:

  • To outline diversity, either historically or cross-culturally, for the population(s) under study;
  • To explain how cultural groups define social constructs (e.g., gender roles, gender attribution, gender ideology and gender identity) and how these are expressed;
  • To identify and explain the social behavior of the population(s) under study;
  • To compare and contrast different cultural groups under study; and
  • To explain why tensions exist between cultural groups and how such tensions are expressed, such as attribution and ideology.
