At the Institute for Ethnic Studies, we’ll help you develop the skills you need to craft your life story. What the chapters read is up to you.
“The most transformative, high-impact learning experience I have had as an Ethnic Studies major was being able to understand intersectionality and how it plays a role in our everyday lives in the U.S. Being an immigrant myself and growing up in a predominantly white town, I never got the opportunity to explore identity, privilege, and racism in the U.S. I grew up with the narrative that the American Dream was possible for everyone because everyone was treated as equal. However, being an Ethnic Studies major allowed me to really explore the history of the U.S and all the inequalities/inequities that still exist today.”
