Race & Culture Course (RCC) Requirements

Approved RCC Courses

Beginning with those entering in the fall of 2008, all UVM students must successfully complete one 3-credit course from Category 1 (Race and Racism in the U.S.) and a second 3-credit course from either Category 1 or Category 2 (Human and Societal Diversity). These courses may also count toward CEMS students HSS elective requirements.

Students who entered UVM prior to the fall of 2008 must take one diversity course. That course may be from either category, and may also include courses that were previously approved but do not appear on this list. Please check with Student Services if you have questions.
