Perspectives (PERS)


The Perspectives designation was proposed by students who wanted to affirm the importance of developing awareness, skills, and knowledge of others' perspectives. Many departments and programs offer opportunities for development in this area. The faculty have approved a set of learning outcomes to distinguish courses that meet the Perspectives objectives.

In the following approved courses, students do all of the following:

  • demonstrate acquired knowledge of underrepresented and/or non-Western viewpoints or analytical lenses;
  • recognize how identities, such as gender, sex, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, and/or class, may intersect and uniquely influence the issues covered in the course; and
  • gain a critical understanding of the connections between such identities and systemic inequities, locally, regionally, and/or (inter)nationally.

Approved Perspectives courses:

to be determined
