Ethnic Studies is a scholarly academic division that studies traditional forms of history and culture from the perspective of people who are underrepresented, while considering the role that race and racism play in today’s world.
The Ethnic Studies major explores differences in power as expressed by the state, civil society, and individuals, challenging social constructions of race, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality and gender.
Ethnic Studies offers 5 unique minors in African American, American Indian, Asian Pacific American, and Chicana/o Studies that allow for a more concentrated focus on a specific racialized population in the United States through the lens of history & politics, contemporary issues, literature, and gender & ethnicity
