Students who are new to the College of LSA (that is, first time enrolled as an LSA student) in the Fall Term of 1991, and thereafter, must (in any term before graduation) receive credit for one of the approved Race or Ethnicity (ROE) courses, such as appear in this listing. Each term's listing will vary as courses are added or deleted by the College of LSA Curriculum Committee. At the time of this publication only American Culture 312/History 377, Anthropology 101, Linguistics 272/Anthropology 272, Sociology 303/CAAS 303, University Courses 298 and 299, and Women's Studies 240/American Culture 240 have been granted blanket approval for meeting the requirement. Otherwise it is most important that you are careful to elect the section of the course taught by the faculty member whose name is listed with the course. Other sections of the course have not been approved to meet this requirement and may not be substituted.
Students who are working toward an AB or BS degree may elect a course to meet the Race or Ethnicity Requirement that also counts toward meeting the Area Distribution or the Concentration or Composition requirements. Likewise, students who are working towards a BGS degree may elect a course to meet the Race or Ethnicity requirement that also counts among their 60 credits of courses numbered 300 or above, or toward the Composition requirement.
Courses approved to meet the Race or Ethnicity requirement will address issues arising from racial or ethnic intolerance. In approving the requirement, the faculty of the College made the following statements:
1. Required content. All courses satisfying the requirement must provide discussion, consistent with disciplinary approaches, of: (1) the meaning of race, ethnicity, and racism; (2) racial and ethnic intolerance and resulting inequality as it occurs in the United States or elsewhere; (3) comparisons of discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, social class, or gender.
2. Required focus. (1) Every course satisfying the requirement must devote substantial, but not necessarily exclusive, attention to the required content. Courses may meet this requirement by various means consistent with disciplines or fields of study, and faculty members from all departments are urged to think creatively about how their fields might contribute to the requirement. (2) Although it is hoped that many of these courses will focus on the United States, it is not required that they do so. Courses that deal with these issues in other societies, or that study them comparatively, may also meet the requirement.
AP credit can not be used to meet this requirement. Credits transferred from another college or university do not meet the requirement, except by successful petition to the Academic Actions Board. If you are transferring a course that you think meets the requirement, you may petition the LSA Academic Actions Board for a waiver. The petition must be accompanied by a description or a syllabus of the course from your previous institution. Ask your advisor about petition procedures.
