The Multicultural and International requirement is a minimum of 6 semester-credits. Students satisfy the requirement by completing a 3-credit course approved as multicultural and a 3-credit course approved as international. A single course may not simultaneously meet both the multicultural and international requirements.
Both the multicultural and international courses may simultaneously satisfy other General Education requirements. The 6 semester-credits may then overlap with rather than add to the total General Education credit requirements.
Multicultural courses examine cultural similarities and differences in the United States based upon two or more attributes which may include, but are not limited to: ethnicity, race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation and disabilities. Multicultural courses provide a solid intellectual examination of issues and factors associated with the chosen cultural attributes of the course. These courses may be discipline specific.

International courses focus on solid intellectual inquiry regarding international themes, factors, or information regarding a presently existing country (or countries) outside the United States. These courses may be discipline specific.
