Students may earn a major or minor in ethnic studies. A secondary goal of the program is to encourage student awareness of the ethnic and culture-based dimensions and applications of other major fields. 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 Ethnic Studies.
