Ethnic Studies

Ethnic studies is an interdisciplinary study of race and ethnicity in the United States. Courses in ethnic studies critically examine the experiences and perspectives of underrepresented populations within social, cultural and political dynamics such as racism, class, gender, sexuality, education, legal status, migration and globalization. Courses in ethnic studies satisfy general education requirements for the associate degree, the associate degree for transfer in Social Justice Studies, and an associate degree in social sciences with an emphasis in ethnic studies.
