Junior requirement

Students must take the ERM Junior Seminar in Comparative Ethnic Studies (ER&M 300) an introductory theory and methods course that immerses incoming majors in the overlapping scholarship of ethnic studies, postcolonial studies, and cultural studies that have critically shaped the study of indigeneity, race, ethnicity and migration in the U.S. and around the globe.  Because of the major’s emphasis on international and transnational work, students are also encouraged to undertake a semester abroad.  Students should consult with the director of undergraduate studies to identify courses from study abroad programs that may count towards the major.
