Pluralism and Diversity

Why Study Pluralism and Diversity?

The United States has always been a pluralistic society, and demographic shifts during the last half of a century have made it even more so. To help students begin making sense of this increasingly diverse society, all two-year degree programs require the completion of Pluralism and Diversity in America (PDA 101) or an equivalent three-credit course. PDA 101 and its equivalent courses engage critical thinking skills through a curriculum that explores racial/ethnic identity, class relations, gender, stereotyping and bias, and the meaning of what it means to be an American.

These courses qualify for General Education credits at all SUNY schools. Other institutions have accepted these courses to fulfill degree requirements in history, sociology, multicultural studies, and humanities.

Degree Offered:

Students interested in the study of Pluralism and Diversity can begin their educational goals by pursuing the Associate in Arts (AA) degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences: Humanities and Social Science.
