Fall Academic Term 2002 Course Guide

Race & Ethnicity for Fall Academic Term 2002


Produced: 11:51 AM on Thu, Dec 19, 2002


The LS&A faculty added the Race & Ethnicity requirement in 1991 after long and thoughtful discussion. The faculty does believe that because racial and ethnic intolerance has fundamentally affected the development of contemporary American society and because its effects will continue to be felt well into the future, all students should take at least one course that deals on a fairly sophisticated level with topics such as the historical development of racism, and the social, political, and economic effects of racism and other types of discrimination.

Courses approved to meet the Race & Ethnicity requirement will address issues arising from racial or ethnic intolerance. In approving the requirement, the faculty of the College made the following statements:

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.

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.

Students who are new to the College of LS&A (that is, first time enrolled as an LS&A student) in the Fall Term of 1991, and thereafter, must (in any term before graduation) receive credit for one of the approved Race and Ethnicity (R&E) courses. Each term's listing will vary as courses are added or deleted by the College of LS&A Curriculum Committee. The College offers several courses taught by a number of different departments each term. Although the list of courses that meet this requirement varies from term to term, all such courses are designed to give students exposure to questions focusing on the meaning of race and racism, racial and ethnic intolerance and resulting inequality, and comparisons with other types of discrimination.

This list is subject to change without notice.
