York College's Program in Cultural Diversity consists of a two-course sequence which is part of the General Education Requirement. The courses are interdisciplinary and their goals are to enable students to:

  1. understand how their own cultures shape and influence their values, attitudes and behaviors,

  2. gain an appreciation of the contributions of their own and other cultural groups to our global civilization, and

  3. develop analytical skills and attitudes that will enable them to understand and to deal constructively with problems that arise from cultural diversity in the community and workplace.
