Culture Courses

A list of culture courses is prepared by Accessibility Services, each semester and made available to students who complete the FLC GCR with culture courses.

Definition of a Culture Course

To be identified as a culture course, the particular course must focus on the culture of a language taught at Goucher College or one of our inter-institutional programs. A significant component of the course must be based on primary sources that emphasize one or more cultures outside the Western anglophone culture. Only courses with grades of D or higher may count towards completion of the FLC GCR.

If a student wants to take a culture course at another institution, the course must be approved by the chair of the Hispanic and Latinx Studies prior to the student taking the course.

The chair of the Hispanic and Latinx Studies department will assess the syllabus of the course for which students are requesting approval. Students taking a transfer course should follow the Transfer of Credits Policy.
