In order to qualify as a Cultures and Worldview course, it must
1. examine aspect(s) of contemporary or past culture(s);
2. explore how culture shapes the way individuals view the world;
3. introduce students to language/terminology from the culture(s) under consideration (if linked with a modern language, terminology derived from that language must be employed);
4. devote one-third of course time and assignments to artifacts produced by the culture(s) being studied.
Artifacts may be aesthetic expressions (visual arts, literature, performing arts) or documents (such as letters, diaries, advertisements, essays).
