Welcome to the DGS Department

The mission of the Diversity and Globalism Studies Department is to improve the lives of students and their communities through education. We offer courses that examine the dynamics of culture and gender in a multicultural, global context.

DGS courses provide the opportunity for students to develop skills needed for productive living in a diverse world and the wide experience which contributes to the pursuit of equity and tolerance.

This mission supports all of Highline's strategic goals, but in particular the initiative to "enhance a college climate that values diversity and global perspectives." Our courses in global studies, women's studies, and ethnic studies provide opportunities for students to understand the diversity of our community, region, and world and to engage in activities that reduce prejudice and discrimination in order to achieve a more equitable, just world.

Our department continues to create new courses to meet the interests of our students (e.g. The LGBT Experience and Language, Power, and Culture courses).  And there is a great diversity among our couses for the following reasons:

  • Students may study a range of ethnic/racial groups.
  • DGS courses are offered in a variety of formats:  face-to-face, hybrid, and online.
  • Students may choose from a range of themes, which are offered through the courses Social Issues and Society and the Arts.

So, join one of our many DGS courses this quarter!
