Race and Ethnic Studies Minor

The Race and Ethnic Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program drawn from the humanities, social sciences, and the arts that is designed to familiarize students with the historical, social, intellectual, and cultural production of race and ethnicity. Students will learn how constructions of ethnicity, race, and racism have changed over time, often in response to changes in the nature of work, family, gender and sexuality, and patterns of migration. Students in the program will develop skills in critical thinking and analysis, social theory, and writing. This academic pathway will help to prepare students for effective citizenship and work in an increasingly diverse world.

Questions about the minor can be directed to Leroy Rowe, Associate Professor, Department of History, or Lance Gibbs, Professor of Race and Ethnic Studies
