Ethnic Studies Program
Ethnic Studies, Minor
Coursework offered in this minor will engage students as they dissect the socially constructed concepts of race and ethnicity and discover how these concepts affect economic, political, and social phenomena. Students will have the opportunity to explore the intersection of race, class, and gender using critical thinking skills and multi-disciplinary and comparative perspectives.
What Can I Do with a Minor in Ethnic Studies?
The coursework required for the Ethnic Studies Minor exposes you to theoretical and critical analyses of race and ethnicity. This minor can be a valuable addition to a History, English, Business, Education, or Anthropology major, to name just a few. The comparative and interdisciplinary courses offer foundational perspectives on four underrepresented groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicano(as)/Latino(as), and Native Americans.
We emphasize developing relationships with organizations whose work strengthens multicultural and multiracial relationships locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. You will be encouraged to seek out internships which provide you the opportunity to incorporate community service with your academic training.
A minor is earned in conjunction with a bachelor's degree.
To receive a minor (18 to 24 units) at Northern Arizona University, you must complete a planned group of courses from one or more subject matter areas with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0.
