The U.S. Race and Ethnic Studies minor offers an interdisciplinary exploration of the concepts of race and ethnicity across the curriculum. The program investigates race and ethnic identities as social, cultural, historical, and material realities and explores the construction and maintenance of those identities in U.S. culture.
