Diversity Studies

辅修多样性研究有两个目的:让学生了解美国的多样性, with a special focus on gender, and to help students find innovative ways of living within a pluralistic society. For the purposes of this minor, "diversity" encompasses cultural, racial, ethnic, religious, sexual, generational and physical diversities within the United States. "Gender" is understood as a subset of diversity and includes the physiology, sociology or psychology of gender difference, sexual identities, gender stereotypes and/or social, economic, cultural and historical structures relating to men's and women's status."

"The minor is intended to complement students' majors. 它的跨学科设计向学生介绍了学科概念化的不同方式, investigate and analyze issues of diversity. The program of study will aid students in refining and expressing their own ideas about diversity, and will encourage them to bring new perspectives to bear on their other areas of study. 顶点研讨会将为学生提供理论工具,以复杂的方式将课程中的材料与他们的研究或职业选择结合起来."
