How wide is your frame of reference?

Your research and work are likely to put you in contact with people and communities of different cultures. A minor in cultural awareness and knowledge will equip you to examine your own assumptions, communicate with empathy and behave ethically when interpreting human behaviors.

Students will engage in critical self-analysis, identify research subjects that are outside familiar literature, and re-evaluate traditional critiques and assertions. A Cultural Awareness and Knowledge minor will give you the tools you need to be sensitive and culturally appropriate in your career.
