The Pluralism & Diversity Requirement

In 1993, the College formulated a Pluralism and Diversity supplement to the then undergraduate distribution requirements (now known as the Core requirement). This 12-hour requirement insures that students will have at least one course in each of four areas defined as:

  1. PD/A a course which focuses on historical and intellectural issues comprising the study of non-European cultures or their political/economic systems, especially those of Africa, Asia, or those indigenous to the Americas;
  2. PD/B a course that focuses on the perspectives and contributions of one or more of the following groups in the United States of America: African-Americans, Asian Americans, Latino Americans, and Native Americans;
  3. PD/C a course that focuses on the perspectives and concerns of women and/or issues of gender/sexual orientation;
  4. PD/D a course that focuses on major issues - artistic, literary, practical or theoretical - reflected in the intellectual traditions of, or primarily derived from Europe;
  5. Further courses that satisfy the Pluralism and Diversity Requirement may simultaneously meet a student's Core Requirement or courses necessary for a major or minor area of study. While some courses may be listed in more than one group of the P&D requirement, students will be able to apply such a course to only one of the four areas.
