In addition to an ethnic studies core of issue-based courses that examine the intersections of race, class and gender and their relation to the construction of ethnicity, one area of emphasis on a specific ethnic group is required.
Students will work closely with a departmental advisor to determine a program of study that best meets their needs.
A grade-point average of 2.00 and a grade of C– or above in all minor course work are required. Individualized research or study is limited to 3 credits.
Note: The internship for this minor, ES 410, is optional. If the internship is taken for 3 credits, upper-division electives will be reduced to 6 credits.
