GE Pathway Minor in Diversity Studies

Pathway Coordinator: Kate McCarthy, TRNT 237.

Variety and difference are essential features of our world, from the broad ethnic diversity that has made California a "majority minority" state, to the incredible biological diversity on which social systems depend.  In this Pathway we study diversity as a fundamental aspect of the physical, biological, and social landscapes of the United States in a global context.  Using the resources of 19 different departments, the Pathway offers multiple opportunities to learn about individual and group differences, as seen through such categories as race, ethnicity, religion, age, language, ability, socio-economic class, gender, and sexuality.  How do these markers serve as mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion in society?  How does the human interaction with diverse physical environments further shape our experiences?  Students in these courses will also develop skills for communication and collaboration with those who are different from themselves and tools for conscientious participation in diverse 21st century societies.
