The minor in ethnic studies offers students the opportunity to enhance and broaden the body of knowledge acquired in their chosen majors and to apply it in a variety of careers involving intercultural relations.
These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
This is an on-campus program and all courses are available online.
