Minor in Multicultural Studies

Multicultural studies provides a complement to a student's overall educational experience by encompassing a wide range of perspectives on the cultural experience in the United States. By exploring the varying identities and communities that form the United States, students will gain a better understanding of both other cultures and their own.

Coursework in multicultural studies will provide students with the background and tools necessary for effective and responsible citizenship in our multicultural society. Students may elect either a minor in Multicultural Studies or a Certificate in Diversity and Identity in the U.S.

The following apply to all minors:

  • A minor must be comprised of 18 credit hours taken at Webster University.
  • No course counted toward a major can also count toward a minor.
  • Students may have a major and a minor within the same department; they may not major and minor within the same area of emphasis.
  • Students must earn a grade of C- or better in any course they wish to apply toward a minor.
