Ethnic studies is an interdisciplinary program that uses cross-cultural comparative methods to explore the diverse histories and cultures of ethnic groups in the US to examine the formation of identities and societies in local, national, and global contexts, and to analyze the social, cultural, and political sources of bias and discrimination.

The ethnic studies minor requires 24 s.h. of credit. A maximum of 6 s.h. may be used to satisfy requirements for both the foundations curriculum and the ethnic studies minor. A course may not count both toward the student’s major requirements and the ethnic studies minor requirements. Study programs abroad having the prior approval of the director may be accepted for up to 6 s.h. of credit toward the minor. Additional courses may be approved by the director if they significantly further the student’s understanding of ethnic studies. Departmental prerequisites may be waived in special cases by the department offering the course.
