Program Description:

The Ethnic Studies Department is an inter-disciplinary social science department specializing in analytic, comparative, and theoretical approaches to the study of ethnicity and race. We offer a course of study designed to train advanced researchers to do inter-disciplinary original discovery scholarship in keeping with our efforts to influence and improve the quality of scholarship and teaching about race and ethnicity at institutions of higher learning in the U.S. and around the world. We believe that a demanding, rigorous, and comprehensive graduate curriculum promoting expertise in analytic, comparative and inter-disciplinary studies of race and ethnicity will position our graduates to play an important role in our field in the years ahead.
