University Studies - BA, Race, Gender, Ethnicity Concentration

This area of concentration is purposefully designed to require that students complete coursework that educates them in interdisciplinary knowledge. Two inquiry-rich, research-based courses, one an introduction and one a capstone senior seminar, provide students with introductory and concluding courses in the methodologies appropriate to interdisciplinary studies in Race, Gender and Ethnicity. Two minors are required for the degree; at least one minor must be from outside the College of Liberal Arts.
