The degree in ethnic studies provides students with an interdisciplinary foundation for the study of American ethic groups. The degree can be earned in a single ethnic subject category or in the combined American cultures option. The curriculum incorporates a range of cultural, historical, political, and sociological methodologies that provide students with a theoretical framework for analysis of the contributions, role and major issues of African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicanos, and Native Americans. Students will apply these theoretical perspectives to analyze socioeconomic and political factors that confront ethnic minorities as they interact with the majority society. Competencies will be assessed through examinations, essays, research papers, and directed projects.
