Students may earn a major or minor in ethnic studies. One learning outcome of the program is to raise student awareness of the racial, ethnic, and political dimensions and applications of other major fields. As such, students of literature, social sciences, education, urban planning, art history, humanities, and international studies—to name only a few—find that related ethnic studies courses can enrich their academic programs.
Courses applied to a major or minor in ethnic studies may not be used to satisfy major or minor requirements for other programs.
Upper-division courses with related subject matter offered in other departments may be included in an ethnic studies major or minor program by arrangement with a course’s instructor and the director of ethnic studies.
Specific details and course approvals must be obtained from the Department of Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies.
