Ethnic Studies

Professor Richard Gómez, Director.

Ethnic studies is offered as an interdisciplinary minor for students who may find a greater knowledge of ethnic groups and majority-minority relations a useful complement to their major area of study. With the continued prominence of public issues related to race and ethnicity it is anticipated that students from diverse fields may benefit from either a broader or a more specialized knowledge of ethnicity. Students may, if they wish, focus on African-American, Mexican-American, or Native-American Studies.

The Ethnic Studies Committee, comprised of faculty from the departments offering courses acceptable as part of the minor, supervises the minor degree plans.

A doctoral minor consists of at least 15 hours of ethnic studies courses to be taken in at least two departments outside the student's major field. A minor at the master's level consists of 6 hours of ethnic studies courses in two departments outside the major. General rules of the Graduate School governing minors at both degree levels apply.

Graduate students who wish to minor in ethnic studies should consult the Director of the Ethnic Studies Committee, Professor Richard Gómez, College of Education.

Courses marked with an asterisk will be considered acceptable as part of the minor when the topic studied deals with ethnic groups. For current course descriptions, see individual departmental listings.
