Cultural Understanding:

Our experiences of the world may seem absolute, but in many ways they are shaped by our culture. The ability to analyze the ways that cultures affect experiences and opportunities is invaluable in today’s society.  In this course, you will examine the social, economic, political, psychological, and cultural experiences and positions of individuals and groups defined by gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, age, religion, and physical/mental abilities. The ability to explain your own cultural perspective and make meaningful comparisons to other cultural perspectives will improve your ability to live and work effectively with diverse groups and individuals."
