The Diversity, Culture, & Inclusion Concentration (18 credit hours) promotes an appreciation of the variety of ways humans live and prepares students for an increasingly interdependent world. It is recommended for students considering a career in a multicultural setting or graduate study in comparative sociology, ethic studies, international studies, anthropology, law, counseling, or social work. Internships are available to seniors in their spring semester. Students are matched to an internship site based on their career interests.
