About the Ethnic Studies Graduate Minor Program
Ethnic studies is offered as an interdisciplinary minor for students who may find a greater knowledge of ethnic groups and majority–minority relations a useful complement to their major area of study. With the continued prominence of public issues related to race and ethnicity, students from diverse fields may benefit from either a broader or a more specialized knowledge of ethnicity. Students may focus on African-American, Mexican-American, or Native-American studies. The Ethnic Studies Committee, which is comprised of faculty from the departments offering courses acceptable as part of the minor, supervises the minor degree plans.
A doctoral minor consists of at least 15 hours of ethnic studies courses to be taken in at least two departments outside the student’s major field. A minor at the master’s level consists of 6 hours of ethnic studies courses in two departments outside the major. General rules of the Graduate School governing minors at both degree levels apply.
