Diversity Intensive Course List

Diversity Intensive Courses

Select one Diversity Intensive (DI) course from anywhere in the College of Arts & Science curriculum to meet the DI requirement. Courses at any level (e.g. general education, 2000-, 3000- or 4000-level) including those in your major or minor area of study, as well as Writing Intensive or Honors courses marked as DI will count for DI credit. Although you may need to meet prerequisites of the specific course you select, DI courses in general do have pre-requisites. If you have questions about specific courses, you will need to ask your department. To receive credit for taking a Diversity Intensive course, students must earn a grade in the C-range or better.

All DI courses use Diversity as a tool for critical thinking and learning by unpacking, revealing, and critically studying the impact of preconceived assumptions about our society and ourselves. DI courses enable students to see the operations of society in a different light, from various vistas and points-of-view. One of the most important features of DI courses is the fostering of what is known as inclusive excellence. “Inclusive excellence reframes the traditional approach to diversity from ‘numerical composition’ into a multidimensional set of institutional processes in which diversity is a foundational aspect of the university’s mission toward better learning, inquiry, and problem solving. It is reflected in the campus climate, curriculum, intellectual discourse, scholarly products, and recruitment and retention efforts.”   That is, diversity curriculum is about more than merely a “survey” of diverse (e.g. underserved or underrepresented) texts, themes, histories, cultures, or perspectives. Inclusive excellence requires an intentional approach to formal and informal learning that attends to both the content orknowledge production and engagement with diversity, inclusion, and equity at the highest level of learning—to a qualitative rather than quantitative measurement of education.

Importantly the DI course requirement broadens and internationalizes the scope of diversity, while maintaining a commitment to and grounding in foundational issues of social inequality. The College of Arts and Science meets these academic goals through course offerings across a vast range of disciplines (e.g. anthropology, art, communication, economics, folklore, history, human development and family studies, language, literature, media, math, politics, religion, sociology) that engage in the study of what is known as “Diversity Across the Curriculum.  Some important strategies of diversity across the curriculum include offering courses related to intercultural, international, and multicultural topics that explore issues of power, social justice, and equity, through both content based knowledge and diversity enhancing skills. Importantly, because of the interdisciplinary nature of diversity courses, both the classroom environment and the course materials contribute to a more intentional experiencing of and learning about diversity. Such strategies provide opportunities, within formal the academic setting, for students and faculty alike to intellectually engage with a diverse community of learners that hold divergent and shared perspectives on some of the most controversial concerns of our day. For example, undergraduate and graduate research and multifaceted faculty training and research in diversity and inclusion, both online and in-classroom, are some methods of achieving student learning goals and increasing faculty competencies and capacities in diversity across the curriculum.  Likewise, they create shared practical experiences and meaningful interactions with others across a broad spectrum of disciplines within the College of Arts and Science. As such, DI courses are not only about an academic discipline, branch, or subject, but also, about people, and their diverse worldviews, cultures, modes of being, and ways of interacting with or being acted upon by systems, organizations, and structures within given societies, including but not limited to how those practices impact their lives in unequal measures. DI courses are flagged in the Registrar's Schedule of Courses. There may also be some DI courses listed at the Campus Diversity Program website that do not yet appear on the Registrar's site. If you have any questions about a particular course, you should contact your advisor well in advance of registering for a course, to ensure that you will receive DI credit.
