Critical Race and Ethnic Studies Major

The Critical Race and Ethnic Studies major fosters the critical and interdisciplinary study of race, ethnicity, and/or indigeneity in an increasingly interconnected world.

Students develop a deep understanding of the particular historical, social, cultural, and political experiences of individual racialized groups within and beyond the United States, as well as the relations among them.

Students choose one of three tracks: they may focus on one social group, or compare two of these groups, or create a self-designed thematic approach.
