Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity

Main content start

School of Humanities and Sciences

CSRE allows you to have a thematic concentration that compares various ethnic groups or explores topics that cut across group experiences in the United States and elsewhere in the world.

What You'll Study

Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity does not focus on a particular ethnic group. Rather, a student in consultation with the adviser designs a curriculum in relation to a thematic concentration that compares various ethnic groups or explores topics that cut across group experiences in the United States and elsewhere in the world. For example, students may compare groups within the U.S., or compare groups in the U.S. to ethnic groups elsewhere, or study the diaspora of a single group or the sovereignty of indigenous peoples within and across different national contexts. Students in this major are able to take advantage of courses in over 22 fields offered by the affiliated faculty of CSRE.
