An important component of a liberal education is the study of cultures other than one's own. As such, multiculturalism encompasses the appreciation of the values, expressions, and modes of organization of diverse cultural communities. To further such study, the University of West Florida requires all students pursuing a bachelor's degree to complete at least one course that explores one or more of the dimensions of another culture (language, religion, socio-economic structures, etc.).
Students are exempt from this requirement if they have completed an Associate of Arts degree or the General Education Program at a Florida public institution, or completed a baccalaureate degree.
The requirement is satisfied by the successful completion of a multicultural course designated on the following list. Several of the selections are General Studies courses, and students may enroll in these to meet both the General Studies and the multicultural requirements. This list is continually updated and students are encouraged to check with their advisors for alternative options.
