All undergraduate plans of study leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Forestry, or Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture must include a minimum of three credits in multicultural awareness electives.
Students must broaden their awareness of the United States domestic, multicultural environment. The objective of the multicultural awareness component of the core curriculum is to stimulate students to become aware of themselves and others and to be better prepared for the workplace and participatory citizenship.
This requirement may be fulfilled through the course of AGR 496, Multicultural Professional Experience, and is a non-credit course.
Successful completion of the approved non-credit multicultural awareness work experience (AGR 496) of a minimum of 4 weeks duration may be used in lieu of three credits of multicultural awareness electives to fulfill the multicultural awareness requirement. The Assistant Dean for Diversity, Dr. Pamala V. Morris, will be the instructor of record for AGR 496. Course proposals that address the leaning objectives of the experience and define how the culture in which the immersion will take place is different from their native culture will be evaluated for approval by Dr. Pamala V. Morris. Approval is required as a condition for registration.
