Ethnic Studies News

“Ethnic Studies is an interdisciplinary study of cultures, linguistic, historical and contemporary issues relating to African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicanos/as-Latinos/as and Native Americans.

“The program directs students to critically examine the cultural contributions made by these groups to world civilization and American society. Ethnic Studies challenges all students to analyze existing generalizations, theories and concepts about racial and ethnic groups in order to develop valid generalizations, concepts and theories.”
