Abstract: The population of the study was made of 313 graduate students who volunteered to participate in the study Questionnaire was used for data collection Cronbach alpha was used to establish the reliability of the instrument and it was 894 The results indicated that the participants had positive perception of multicultural education However, the findings revealed that when female graduate students were compared with their male counterparts, the former revealed negative perception unlike the latter who were positive in their perception of multicultural education The finding did also indicate that the participants did not show resistance to the use of multicultural education strategies as means for facilitating instruction as argued in some previous studies The participants believed that effective instruction on multicultural education strategies should include student engagement in real life multicultural issues and activities The participants agreed that they knew more about multicultural education because of living in multicultural neighborhoods
