Ethnic Studies Program

The School of Community Affairs offers the field major in Ethnic Studies. Ethnic Studies courses also support the university's general education program. The program in Ethic Studies is interdisciplinary and the primary objective is on developing knowledge, attitudes and requisite skills needed in order to communicate effectively across cultural boundaries. As part of the curriculum, students are equipped with a firm grounding in the theory and practice of intercultural communication through a broad base that encompasses not only the traditionally defined minority groups, but also newcomers in the immigrant stream.
