Cultural Diversity in American Society is a course designed to strengthen student awareness of cultural pluralism and cultural diversity. This course focuses on the analysis of a wide spectrum of selected minority groups and their relationship to the dominant society and culture.

Heavy emphasis will be placed on examining the positive consequences of cross-cultural awareness as a means of lessening intergroup tensions and conflicts.
