Chapter III: Degree Requirements and Graduation
Common Requirements for the A.B., B.S.,
and B.G.S. Degrees
Race & Ethnicity
At some point before graduation, students must
receive credit for one course from a list
of Race & Ethnicity courses published each term on the Student
Academic Affairs website:
These courses will address issues arising from
racial or ethnic intolerance and will meet the following criteria:
- Required content. All courses satisfying
the requirement must provide discussion concerning: (a) the meaning
of race, ethnicity, and racism; (b) racial and ethnic intolerance
and resulting inequality as it occurs in the United States or
elsewhere; (c) comparisons of discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, social class, or gender.
- Required focus. Every course satisfying the requirement
must devote substantial, but not necessarily exclusive, attention
to the required content. 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.
Credits transferred from another college or university
do not meet the requirement except by successful petition to
the Academic Standards Board.
Credits used to satisfy the R&E requirement
also may be used to satisfy other college requirements.
