Major

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.






Minor

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. Like the major, the Ethnic Studies minor takes a broader view across the intersection of race & gender, contemporary issues, and your choice of several electives.
