Consider the offerings in each category relative to this theme. Remember that each Bacc Core category requires the completion of one (1) course. The Bacc Core Playlists draw primarily from the Perspectives and Synthesis areas of the core and do not constitute complete coverage of the Bacc Core. For example: the majority of lists do not include courses from every perspectives sub-category, nor do they incorporate/address the Skills areas of the core.

Students who are interested in this playlist, may also want to consider the Social Justice minor that is available at OSU.
