Peoples and Cultures Courses

The peoples and cultures requirement is intended to help students to begin to understand the cultural diversity of American society and the world at large, so that, as citizens of an increasingly interconnected world, they may become better able to respond sensitively and intelligently to peoples of varied social backgrounds and cultural frameworks. Courses which fulfill this requirement are thus designed to familiarize students with some dimension of American cultural diversity or that of the non-Western world. Each student must complete one graded semester course primarily concerned with: (a) the peoples and cultures of North America that trace their origins to Africa, Asia, Latin America, Oceania, or the Caribbean; Native-American peoples and cultures; or (b) the peoples and cultures of Africa, Asia, Latin America, Oceania, or the Caribbean. Although this course, which may be counted toward the divisional distribution requirement, may be completed any semester before graduation, students are urged to complete the course by the end of the sophomore year.
