Studying Diversity at the UW

Diversity is a term that encompasses human differences in race, gender, class, sexuality, religion, disability, age, nationality and ethnicity. At the University of Washington, we believe that learning about diversity is a central part of your undergraduate education. In lieu of requiring a single course on diversity that all students take, departments across campus offer over 400 courses taught year-round that provide interesting opportunities to broaden and deepen your understanding of the varied histories, societies, political structures, literatures, arts and cultures of the U.S. and the world.
