University Studies - BA, Race, Gender, Ethnicity Concentration

This area of concentration is purposefully designed to require that students complete an individualized body of coursework that educates them in interdisciplinary knowledge. Four inquiry-rich, research-based courses; an introduction to each discipline; and a capstone senior seminar provides students with introductory and concluding courses in the methodologies appropriate to interdisciplinary studies in the Race, Gender, Ethnicity Concentration. Other courses in the core are drawn from areas such as Africana Studies, Latino/a and Mexican-American Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies. 

In the addition to a core of courses focused on race and ethnicity and gender, each student must complete two minors for the degree. It is expected that at least one minor will be from outside the College of Arts and Sciences.

A student enrolled in the University Studies concentration of Race, Gender, Ethnicity may not pursue a double major or a double degree.
