The program in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration

Our program enables students to engage in interdisciplinary, 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 knowledge of and direct engagement with the cultures, structures, and peoples formed by these migrations.  

Prospective majors must consult the director of undergraduate studies early in their academic careers to discuss an individual plan of study and obtain permission to enroll in the major prior to the fall semester of their junior year.  The director of undergraduate studies will make sure that all prospective majors have completed proper preparatory coursework as freshman and sophomores.
