MDI - Minor in Diversity and Inclusion

Catalog Full Description

Baccalaureate degree students may select a minor in a different field of study to complement their major.  An academic minor allows students to expand their educational experience by exploring a particular subject or subjects in sufficient depth to gain competency. By completing a minor, a student can become familiar with an additional area of study which will supplement the expertise gained in the major.

The minor in diversity and inclusion is an interdisciplinary program that examines social differences and inequalities related to human differences, including, though not exclusively, race, class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and disability. The minor enables students to take an intersectional approach to recognize and address patterns of conscious and unconscious bias and discrimination that produce social inequality. Students will be able to apply leadership skills and perspectives acquired in the diversity and inclusion minor to social institutions, civic participation, career development, and organizational cultures in order to promote a just and equitable society.


Area A - E courses and required courses within the major cannot dually count for the minor, but Area F courses and elective courses within the major can also count for the minor.  If a course is required by name for both the major and minor, then students should take an additional course in the minor to reach the required minimum of 15 credits for a minor.
