The Institute for Ethnic Studies

We examine the world through a social justice and human rights lens that focuses on race and ethnicity.

Our majors, minors, and graduate specializations offer an interdisciplinary, experiential, comparative, and integrative education. Whether you focus on African and African American, Latinx and Latin American, or Indigenous Studies, you explore your intellectual and professional curiosity in a community-oriented, interactive culture.

Graduates from the Institute for Ethnic Studies go on to careers in business, education, government service, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other fields, as well as to graduate school, law school, and medical school.
