Ethnic Studies Minor

Ethnic Studies is an interdisciplinary field founded in activism and critically engaging the historical and ongoing impact of race and ethnicity primarily in the US but within a global context. A minor in Ethnic Studies provides students with a strong background and set of analytical skills to address issues of difference and inequality in a wide range of areas, from state policy and institutions to pop culture, media, and literature, and is a valuable complement to any major.
