Race, Ethnicity and Inter-Cultural Understanding Curriculum Map
This curriculum map with course description includes TC courses focused specifically and consistently throughout the semester on issues of race, ethnicity and inter-cultural understanding. The courses are organized by four overlapping themes, with courses listed by departments to help students match their interests and fulfill their requirements.

Theme #1: Policy, History, and Social Context
Under this first theme, we list courses that explore the social, political, and historical analysis of race, ethnicity, and diversity, as well as the policies and laws that govern educational institutions and often have a disparate impact according to race. Most of the courses under this theme emphasize issues of educational equity in schools, colleges, and other contexts.
Theme #2: Social Theory, Socio-Cultural Understandings, & Language/Linguistics
This theme includes courses that explore the intersection of identity and culture, as well as the conceptual frameworks that provide meaning and understanding to people’s lived experiences as they relate to issues of race, ethnicity and intercultural understanding.
