The minor in race & ethnicity studies takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of race and ethnicity.

What do these categories of difference mean? How have they been defined, constructed, and applied in different historical and socio-cultural contexts? How do they intersect or overlap with other aspects of difference (e.g., gender, class, nation, sexuality, religion)? Exploring these questions with analytical tools and approaches developed in a range of academic disciplines, the minor leads to a critical examination of the construction of race and ethnicity in a variety of social, cultural, historical, political, and economic contexts.
