Welcome

The Program in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration (ER&M) enables students to engage in interdisciplinary and comparative study of forces that have created a multicultural, multiethnic, and multiracial world.
The major emphasizes familiarity with the intellectual traditions and debates surrounding the concepts of indigeneity, ethnicity, nationality, and race; grounding in both the history of migration and its contemporary manifestations; and direct engagement with and knowledge of the culture, structures, and peoples formed by these migrations.
Undergraduate majors in ER&M take courses and pursue research projects that focus on the United States, on other regions of the world, or on global comparisons; and they explore methodologies drawn from many different disciplines across the humanities and social sciences.
