The Ethnic Studies major offers foundational courses that introduce students to central concepts and current approaches to Ethnic Studies theory and methods. In consultation with an Ethnic Studies faculty advisor, students will select a set of electives that reflect their individual interest in certain topics or current debates, specific ethno-racial communities, geographic areas, or historical time periods. In a community-based learning experience, students will bridge academic learning and “read-world” practice through service learning, internships, volunteer work, or student-teaching. Finally, for their senior experience, students may choose from three options designed to bring reflection and focus to their Ethnic Studies experience.
