Identity-based Courses in Geneseo's Curriculum

We encourage students to engage in meaningful conversations on race, racism, identity, and discrimination during their time at Geneseo. We have compiled a non-exhaustive list of courses that will prompt discussion on these topics so that students can continue the conversations that began in academic year 2019-20 and continue to underscore Geneseo's commitment to broad and inclusive education every year.

While not every course is offered every semester, we encourage students to think about how courses that approach identity through different disciplinary lenses will enhance their academic programs.
