Studies in Race

Studies in Race courses will focus on the impact of race and racism on social, cultural, and political institutions. They will study how different manifestations of racism have surfaced over the course of history and how they affect society and individuals today.

Some Studies in Race courses may fulfill other Core requirements; some will be Writing-intensive courses. Studies in Race courses will usually have course numbers with an "R" prefix.

Note that these courses may also have non-Studies in Race sections, without an R number, they do not meet the Studies in Race requirement.

This requirement applies to Temple undergraduates who matriculated as freshmen in fall, 1993 (having completed fewer than 15 semester hours before then) and after, and to all transfer students matriculating as Temple undergraduates in fall, 1994, and after.

Requirement: One three credit course from the approved list. This list continues to expand. Therefore, students should consult their advisers and the current Directory of Classes for other approved courses.)
