Davidson College believes that all students should have the experience of studying societies or cultures that differ from the majority cultures of the United States or Europe. To that end, each student must complete before graduation an approved course dealing with one or more such cultures. At the beginning of each department or program’s section in the catalogue is a list of the courses in the department or program that meet the requirement. Many such courses may also satisfy a distribution, major, or minor requirement.

Note: new courses may become qualified during the year and may not yet appear on this list. Current students should note, as well, that some courses taught in the past (but no longer) carried cultural diversity credit at the time; as discontinued courses, they may no longer be on the list, but the cultural diversity credit already earned still is valid.
