Welcome to the Institute for Ethnic Studies!
We’re composed of three interdisciplinary programs: African American and African Studies, Latina/o and Latin American Studies and Native American Studies. We offer two majors (Ethnic Studies and Latin American Studies) and six minors. Majors and minors can focus in one area or design a broad-based course of study, according to their interests. Many of our courses are also ACE-certified. (Many students find they can easily add a major or minor in Ethnic Studies to their course of study.)
