The ARMS major includes any one of the courses numbered ARMS 121-125, and seven other courses, plus a senior project. One of the seven courses may be an independent study or research, and one may be an internship approved by the director of ARMS. Study Off-Campus on diversity topics is strongly recommended.
Unlike many majors, which prescribe sequences of courses, American Racial and Multicultural Studies allows students considerable freedom in choosing classes that fulfill their interests (and often, at the same time, fulfill general education requirements). Many ARMS majors are double majors, because ARMS courses complement many majors in the Humanities, social sciences, and the arts.
